    Updated On: Nov 19, 2020

    When you shop local, you’re helping your community. 

    Good jobs build strong communities!

    Some stores guarantee high wages and good benefits to workers - others don’t. Support the

    communities you live, work and play in by shopping local.

    Stores like Acme and ShopRite treat employees like family, providing high wages, good

    benefits, and a voice in the workplace. These aren’t just employees – these are your neighbors,

    friends, and family. Support stores that support our community.

    The Union Difference

      

    Hard working men and women are seeing their way of life on the verge of collapse as health

    insurance costs skyrocket, pensions disappear, and real wages stagnate. The future of working

    families depends on a united voice that can stand up to powerful interests.

    With most of the economic benefits of our economy going to corporate America, working people are using the power of collective action to get their fair share. With a union, workers stand together to bargain for affordable health insurance, prescription drug coverage, living wages, safe working conditions, equal opportunity, a secure pension and a voice in the workplace.

    Non-union workers have limited rights and can be fired “at-will,” for no reason. Non-union

    workers also find that the rules can change at the whim of the employer.

    Companies with unionized workers show that they care about the needs of their employees and their community.

    The next time you’re going shopping, consider how the employees’ livelihoods are affected by

    your decision. With grocery workers on the front lines of this pandemic, providing food safely

    and efficiently to feed our families, we should support stores that support their workers.
