    My sister works for rite aid and her store recently joined the ufcw and she was telling me the other night how her higher ups fucked her and a few others out of hours this week and next. The took someone in from a recently closed rite aid and this person bitched that they wanted 40 hours(which they didnt have and should not have hired her) so they did it and cut staff hours to fit her in. WELL only problem is they went around the union and its by laws to do it when they should have put it up to a union vote meaning this person was brought in illegally, totally disregarding union rules which state it has to go to a full vote....this time its not a case of unions doing wrong but corporate fucking over the little guys and saying we dont care about you, the union steward is fighting it for them and if all goes well my sis and the others will get back pay.

    Companies like this are the only reason Unions still exist, and unfortunately are needed.

    Unions are great. I believe in them sincerily. Those who oppose unions are usually working for minimum wage, are jealous of a good wage earned in a Union shop, and are really not too bright. Many non-union people live in Trailers, or rooming houses because they can't afford a home. How sad............
