In other UFCW 400 news, a major march and rally to save local Giant Food grocery stores is scheduled for Wednesday at 11a. Eight Giant Food grocery stores in the region are slated for potential sale as the result of a merger between Ahold and Delhaize, the European-based parent companies of Giant Food and Food Lion. “Hundreds of jobs and the future of our community are at stake,” says Local 400. “We can’t let a corporate merger in Europe take away good jobs and quality shopping options here at home.” The rally starts at UFCW Local 400 (8400 Corporate Dr, Landover, MD) and will then march to nearby Giant Food headquarters. The local has arranged buses from Virginia and southern Maryland, free and open to anyone interested in attending; click here for details.
