UFCW 8-Golden State President Jacques Loveall applauded Stater Bros. Markets for implementing a $2.00-per-hour pay raise to its workers. The raise will apply to all hourly employees of the Union-affiliated chain over the course of four weeks beginning March 23.
“With this move, Stater Bros. shows its appreciation for our brave and dedicated members who serve on the front lines in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic,” President Loveall said.
“This company recognizes the important role our members perform in providing access to food, medicine and other essential supplies to a community in distress,” he continued.
“Food and drug store workers across California deserve special recognition as they continue to serve the public under stressful conditions, including potential risks to their own health.”
Loveall said UFCW 8-Golden State will continue working with Stater Bros. management to further enhance safety and positive working conditions at the chain.
