Attention UFCW members: We demand that Instacart stop their efforts to eliminate the jobs of essential workers
Local 1500 members working in grocery stores are now included on the list of key employees that can be vaccinated for COVID-19! Please follow the directions in the attached links to begin the process to get the vaccine.
Attention Local 1500 members working in Stop & Shop:
Local 1500 along with other UFCW Locals in Region 1 have been able to negotiate an additional payment for your hazard pay with Stop & Shop.
There is a one-time payment of:
$300 for Full-Timers and $150 for Part-Timers.
Payouts are scheduled to be distributed on February 4th, 2021.
We believe our members deserve more than what the Company has agreed to pay out at this time, and Local 1500 will continue to push for hazard pay until the virus is no longer a threat for our members.
Thank you for being a member of our Union and remember Local 1500 will never stop fighting on your behalf.
