FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Informational picketing is set to begin around noon today at five New Seasons Market stores.
Members of New Seasons Labor Union are protesting the elimination of COVID-19 sick leave, which was removed unilaterally by New Seasons Market on January 1st, 2023.
Workers say that New Seasons violated their rights under federal law because it eliminated the protection without bargaining with the worker's union. They also say that cutting the benefit endangers the community.
