Update on Pathmark Bankruptcy Developments

 
 
A ruling on severance for the remaining stores has still not been officially made by the bankruptcy judge. However, we have the following written confirmation from Chris McGarry, Chief Administrative Officer of A&P:
 
1. A & P will pay severance to all laid-off employees unless he or she is offered an equivalent position with substantially similar terms;

2. A & P will pay severance to all employees facing layoff who are currently out on disability or workers' comp.;

We are still working each day to guarantee the same level of severance pay for all Pathmark members affected by store closures and trying to find more buyers for the unpurchased Pathmark stores. We are also meeting with our Union employers every day in an effort to get our members interviews and permanent job opportunities in their existing stores to keep as many of you working as we can.  Please review the chart below for a full updated list of our Pathmark stores.

For the members of Pathmark’s 623 and 663, we have confirmed that your severance will be paid within 30 days of the October 18th closing date.  Severance will be paid out in a lump sum payment. If you have any questions about your level of severance please contact your respective Union Representative: Pathmark # 663: Joe Waddy 516-214-1349, jwaddy@ufcw1500.org. Pathmark # 623: Joe Castelli, 516-214-1360, jcastelli@ufcw1500.org
