ATTENTION ALL LOCAL 1500 MEMBERS WORKING AT SHOPRITE
***HAZARD PAY SETTLEMENT REACHED***
For many weeks Local 1500, along with a coalition of UFCW/RWDSU Locals, have been negotiating with ShopRite to reinstate Hazard Pay. Especially for those members who worked the stores throughout the toughest months of the pandemic. Today, we are happy to announce that a settlement has been reached with the Company.
ShopRite has agreed to pay a lump sum equal to $1.00 per hour for all hours worked during the period from July 26th, 2020 through August 22nd, 2020. This payout will occur during week ending December 12th, 2020 to any Local 1500 member still on the payroll as of December 5th, 2020.
While this was not an easy task, we are happy that we were able to accomplish what we did. Getting additional recognition for the hardworking men and women of all the ShopRite companies that we represent was paramount for us.
Again, we thank you and all members of Local 1500 for the incredible and tireless dedication you have exhibited to your communities during this difficult time, and we will continue to fight for you!
