AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT JOHN T. NICCOLLAI - FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2021
SALE OF PERLMART STORES TO SAKER SHOPRITE
Your Local Union continues to work diligently to assure all our Brothers and Sisters that the transition of the Perlmart Stores to Saker ShopRite ownership will be smooth and painless.
We were successful in getting an agreement that all members will be transferred keeping their rates of pay, benefits and emoluments; including their full-time or part-time status. Further, the Collective Bargaining Agreement presently in effect will continue and employees will retain their present seniority among themselves.
Both Perlmart and Saker also signed an agreement obligating them to pay for any unpaid vacation time, sick time and personal days; and also to contribute to the Union Trust Funds for both Pension and Health Care to avoid any break in continued enrollment.
The last remaining issue relates to the paperwork needed for employment and the signing of new Union Authorization Cards.
We wish to thank our Perlmart Brothers and Sisters for their unwavering support during this period, which allowed your Union to deliver these outstanding results. May this achievement be the first successful event in a new beginning, and a future of continued good fortune as we grow with our new Employer.
WORK SMARTLY – WORK SAFELY
