Grocery Unions Rally at Harlem Pathmark to Protest A&P CEO Eric Claus Appearance on Good Morning America; Union Files Federal Charges Filed Against A&P
WHAT: Rally protesting A&P CEO Eric Claus' Appearance on Good Morning America.
WHEN: Friday April 17th, 8:45 AM-10:00 AM
WHY: UFCW Local 1500 has filed charges with both New York State and Federal agencies against A&P/Pathmark for various violations of law. The Union is also protesting the layoff of dozens of workers at A&P/Pathmark's due to the West Hempstead Pathmark store closing.
"A&P/Pathmark needs to answer this question: How does a family feed themselves after A&P/Pathmark lays them off," stated UFCW Local 1500 President Bruce W. Both. "For this company to give advice on how to feed families during these difficult times while needlessly adding people to the unemployment line is the height of hypocrisy. Good Morning America should not be a party to this charade," Both concluded.
