Grocery workers pushing union drive in Providence


From the United Food and Commercial Workers, regarding an event tomorrow:

Providence, R.I.—Members of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW), grocery workers and community members will gather at the Providence PriceRite store on 325 Valley St., to hand flyers out to customers and speak with them about the need for good union jobs in this troubled economy. Workers will be available for media interviews between 11:30 a.m. and noon.

PriceRite is owned by the same company that owns and/or supplies ShopRite stores in Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware, Connecticut, and New Jersey, where the vast majority of workers have a union—and benefits that make their grocery jobs the kind of good, middle-class jobs that strengthen communities and our economy.
