Oct 28, 2015 – Walgreens has reached an agreement to purchase Rite Aid but the details of the deal are complicated and not yet finalized.
Rest assured, the terms of the contract remain in full effect. Your Union leaders have already been in contact with Rite Aid and will continue to discuss the details and ramifications of any sale. As more information of the sale becomes available, we will continue to keep you informed.
Over the next several months, government regulators will examine the deal between Walgreens and Rite Aid and determine if it will be allowed to move forward.
Protecting the rights of UFCW 8 members and the integrity of the contract through this process and beyond is our highest priority. Support your Union with your words and actions and we will continue to demonstrate Solidarity Works!
