The NCCFT Executive Committee, in solidarity with the United Food and Commercial Workers, Local 1500 (Westbury), urges you to sign a petition calling on A&P to close its stores Christmas Day. As reported in Newsday (“Union: Close Supermarkets on Christmas,” Dec 13, 2011) workers with the UFCW Local 1500 have just concluded new contract negotiations. During a year made difficult by uncertain and ultimately concessionary collective-bargaining we ask that A&P allow workers to rest and spend time with family during this holiday-season. Other local grocery chains King Kullen and Stop&Shop have closed their doors Christmas Day. We urge A&P to do the same.
