Tuesday's cold, rainy, foggy day didn't stop dozens of UFCW Local 400 members, State Senator Ellis, Delegate Fisher and At-Large Councilman Calvin Hopkins from gathering in front of the Shoppers Food Warehouse on Martin Luther King Highway in Landover, MD to protest the closing of Shoppers Food stores around the region. With parent company UNFI refusing to offer affected workers any answers or direction," Local 400 president Mark Federici called UNFI out as "an example of unbridled corporate greed. We’re here today because somebody made a choice to turn their backs on hardworking families in the middle of the holidays. This is no way for UNFI to treat dedicated Shoppers employees." Local 400 is partnering with the Metro Council's Community Services Agency and other Prince George's County agencies to organize a Resource Fair for Saturday, January 11, 10a-2p to take place at Local 400's headquarters. More information to come.
