Update on A&P Bankruptcy Developments

Below you will find an update on the latest Bankruptcy Court procedures. We have also updated the Pathmark Store Status Chart below to reflect new stores that will be represented by our Union, Local 1500. Please do not hesitate to contact your Union Representative or contact us for any questions you may have.
The Bankruptcy Court has approved the Debtor’s Motion to set a bar date of November 30, 2015 at 5 p.m. Eastern time for the filing of proof of claim forms for unsecured claims, which are claims that accrued before the bankruptcy petitions were filed on July 19, 2015.  Such claims must be received at the addresses provided in the claim form notice before 5 p.m. on November 30, 2015.  A Notice and claim form related to this Order have been or probably will be sent or handed by store managers to some employees and former employees.  
UFCW local unions are filing proofs of claim for all grievances and arbitrations, PTO, and other claims arising under their collective bargaining agreements with A&P affiliates and any unfair labor practices.  Of course, if an employee wants to file a claim form he or she may do so, but consistent with the information provided herein employees do not have to file a proof of claim for claims under a collective bargaining agreement because UFCW local unions are doing so.  Employees should make sure your local union is aware of any grievances concerning actions that took place before July 19, 2015, the day that the bankruptcy petitions were filed.
NOTE: If employees or former employees have any claims that do NOT arise under the collective bargaining agreement, including workers’ compensation claims, discrimination claims, or any personal lawsuits, you should strongly consider filing an individual proof of claim (claims of this type will NOT be included in any proof of claim filed by UFCW affiliates), and if you have an attorney on any such matter you may want to discuss with the attorney the bar date and the filing of a proof of claim.
Please contact your Union Representative if you have any additional questions regarding this matter.
We have also created a website,, where you can find answers to your questions on benefits, find job postings, and Resource Fair schedules.
Please review the chart below for a full updated list of our Pathmark stores. The blue highlighted cells are stores that will now be represented by Local 338. The red highlighted cells are stores that will now be represented by Local 1500.
We'd like to welcome new members of UFCW Local 1500 at three former Waldbaums stores, Center Moriches (bought by Dan's Supreme Key Food,, North Patchogue (bought by King Kullen) & College Point (bought by Glass Gardens ShopRite). Welcome! We look forward to serving you!

Please do not hesitate to contact us for any questions, concerns or issues.
Thank you,
UFCW Local 1500

Is there any new info on what Manichevitz Family LLC is doing with the location at 1245 61st in Brooklyn yet? It was the only decently priced supermarket in the area.
