UFCW Local 1776 Announces New Agreement With Rite Aid
PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- UFCW Local 1776 members employed by Rite Aid in Southeastern Pennsylvania have ratified a new three-year contract. The three-year agreement, covering approximately 2000 union members, was overwhelmingly approved on October 3, 2001. The new three-year contract includes a substantial wage increase and improvement in health and welfare benefits. It also improved the disability benefit increasing the period of coverage from 13 weeks to 26 weeks. Wendell W. Young, IV, Executive Vice President of the United Food & Commercial Workers Union Local 1776, said: "We are pleased that we were able to negotiate a contract that provides good wages, and some of the best benefits in the country. I believe that when a company compensates its workers fairly and provides protection for them and their family members through good benefits, the company prospers by having motivated and talented workers, and consumers benefit by knowing great people will be helping them when they shop at Rite Aid." UFCW Local 1776 also represents Rite Aid workers throughout Central and Northeast Pennsylvania, who are covered by separate contracts.
