Hear from CVS worker Pedro Rodriguez
CVS has the means to do the right thing and give us more hours to do whatever they’re asking us to do. You know, it’s just unreasonable to do all this work with the amount of hours allocated. No one can do it…CVS, do the right thing. Give us a fair contract. It is needed to keep our family safe, your customers safe…
