SHORTAGE OF ADEQUATE WORKERS

President Niccollai reported today that as Frontline Employees in the Food Industry, we are experiencing an inability by some of our Union Employers to properly staff departments.  This situation is occurring because of several factors:

First, there are people still fearful of returning to work because of COVID-19 issues.

Second, workers, especially women, are unable to return to the job because they have children not fully attending school on a daily basis.

A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE VACCINE TUNNEL

FOR FOOD WORKERS!

 

 

President Niccollai reported today that as you know from prior postings, your Union has been unwavering in our attempt to achieve recognition of “our Essential Worker status” for receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.  Well, we can finally report success on that issue.

KINGS BANKRUPTCY UPDATE

Your Union was notified today by our Kings Bankruptcy Attorneys that the Federal Trade Commission has cleared the issues that were holding up the sale to ACME and, further, the sale should close on or about January 23, 2021.  As we know, this sale relates to 27 stores and we need to continue in our quest with ACME and our other Union Employers to get positions for any Kings member displaced and seeking employment.

A HOLIDAY MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT JOHN T. NICCOLLAI - THURSDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2020

 

As we approach the Holiday Season with a vaccine just around the corner, we have many reasons to be thankful.

As essential workers, we continue to bring home a well deserved paycheck, where many in the labor force have not seen money in over ten months.

Our contract negotiations were a tremendous success and will provide for our Full-time and Part-time workforce for many years to come, especially with our no co-pay healthcare.

KINGS BANKRUPTCY UPDATE

President Niccollai reported today that the Rumor Mill is running wild again, with stories being issued by uninformed sources that are undermining the workforce and the integrity of the Company.  Let’s all take a few minutes, settle down and deal with the facts and not a Rumor Mill that’s always negative and hurtful.

First, ACME is the successful bidder for 27 stores and seeks to enhance the reputation of Kings and grow the business.  (That’s very positive.)
