100 Days War: Union Demands Sweeping Industry Change

With COVID-19 cases on the rise, the UFCW is calling for swift changes to the grocery and meatpacking industries, including pay raises, mandatory mask wearing and more.

The $2-per-hour increase meets the retailer's 2017 goals; one-time bonus comes as premium pay ends and some COVID health benefits are extended.

From permanent hires to rising profits, retailers are making changes to operations as a new reality sets in.

The Save Mart Cos. has dramatically increased staffing at its 206 stores since the start of the pandemic, hiring 1,000 team members, the majority of whom have become full-time workers.

As municipalities lift COVID restrictions, the company shifts to a one-time reward bonus for average weekly hours worked since mid-March, a move drawing condemnation from a labor union.

Bryan Roberts spent more than 15 years studying the grocery industry as an analyst before a restructuring sent him to the front lines of the COVID crisis.

Grocery workers urge Kroger and others to reinstate hazard pay as they continue to face a risky work environment.

In a recent interview with CNN, UFCW President Marc Perrone suggests that all eyes are on Kroger with regard to the end of "hero pay."

Under scrutiny for letting hourly premiums expire, the retailer announces a "bookend" bonus.
