Frequently Asked Questions
Are all ShopRite stores union?
Some are, and some unfortunately are not. The United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) represents thousands of ShopRite workers across Connecticut, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. A handful of ShopRite stores in Maryland and Connecticut are not yet unionized. ShopRite union members have a written contract that protects them on the job and guarantees their rights, wages, and benefits at work, like:
- A living wage and yearly guaranteed raises.
- Quality employer-paid healthcare for those who need it.
- An equal and fair workplace, free of favoritism.
- Clearly defined positions and job security.
- Consistent weekly schedules and flexibility.
- Opportunity to grow and build a better life.
- Hundreds of member discounts.
Most importantly, our members have a voice in their pay, benefits, and working conditions by voting on their contract every 3 years.
Why did some ShopRite workers get back hazard pay and not others?
At the UFCW, we know our members deserve wages that reflect the risks and sacrifices they continue to make serving our communities on the frontline of this pandemic. That’s why UFCW Local 371 in Connecticut with other UFCW Locals in New York and New Jersey successfully negotiated over 20 MILLION dollars in back hazard pay for thousands of our members in ShopRite stores.
When you have a union at work, you and your coworkers have the ability to advocate and fight for the pay and protections you need. That’s why we believe ShopRite workers everywhere deserve a union contract!
