Long Island Families Deserve Better
Today at Best Yet in Huntington Station, NY, as part of an ongoing effort to highlight hardworking people, and their desire for better jobs, the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) union launched a coordinated television campaign and grassroots effort to show why Long Island needs Best Yet and Best Market stores to change for the better.
"I have lived on Long Island my entire life, I know the real difference that a good job with better wages and benefits can make," said Steven Dozier, a Local 1500 member from Roosevelt who is part of the ad. "When Best Market grew, they didn't do it alone, their hardworking employees and their dedication are the real secret to Best Market's success. Best Market needs to change and do what's right, by providing our neighbors and friends with better wages and benefits so that we can all have have a better future together. We want Best Market to live up to their name and do what's best for Long Island families, they owe it to those who work hard everyday and to our communities."
UFCW/RWDSU Locals 338, 342 & 1500 along with community groups like the Long Island Progressive Coalition, Long Island Jobs with Justice rallied in front of Best Market's Huntington Station store, demanding the company do better by their employees.
