AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT JOHN T. NICCOLLAI - 8/13/2018

PRESIDENT NICCOLLAI REPORTS ON UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS
FOR STRIKING WORKERS

UFCW President John T. Niccollai extends his deepest thanks to Governor Murphy for signing A-3861.  The Bill will provide unemployment benefits to workers immediately or within 30 days, dependent upon whether the work stoppage is a strike, lockout or non-compliance with the legislation by the Employer. 

Seafood Gap:

          The Wall Street Journal released a journal report entitled Future of Food, which featured an interview with T.J. Tate and Amy Novogratz about “The Large Seafood Gap”. Ms. Tate, director of sustainable-seafood program at the National Aquarium, explained that consumers are unaware how rapidly the need for seafood is increasing due to the population.

Shellfish Spa

              Retailers are doing everything they can to make shopping trips an experience for customers. With the threat of online shopping, supermarket chains are trying out new ideas to increase traffic in the stores. One example of how stores are doing this is with a new display called the “Shellfish Spa”. Tom Olsen, president of Lobster Life Systems is the creator of ‘Shellfish Spa’, a device which preserves live product such as clams, oysters, mussels, and etc.

“Grocers Gear Up Online”

              Stephen Wilmot, in an article published on December 21, 2017 in the Wall Street Journal, covered a topic that has been widely discussed over the past several years. Wilmot recaps several companies’ investments and innovations in new technologies in terms of grocery shopping.

Supermarkets as Pillars

            Local Supermarkets are always a vital part of every community. Most supermarkets partake in many charitable avenues to help communities in need. When natural disasters cause devastation, it is often supermarkets that serve as a safe haven for community members.

The ‘Fiercely Loyal’ Customer

          With all the changes happening in the supermarket industry, it is easy to be swept up in the new technologies breaching the market. Walmart is dramatically increasing the investment in the online grocery department of their chains. In addition, Amazon’s entry into the supermarket industry with its purchase of Whole Foods has some stores worried about upgrading their online presence.

Transparency in Sustainable Seafood

           In today’s market, consumers are becoming increasingly concerned with a transparency in the items they buy. Shoppers are interested in where the fresh food they’re buying comes from; whether it is in local produce, fresh cut beef cut on site, or the origins of fresh seafood.

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT JOHN T. NICCOLLAI

Given all that you do for our union family and yours, I wish I could thank you personally.
