Market of Choice Workers United for Hazard Pay
Reinstate "Hazard Pay/Workload Premium" until the pandemic danger is FULLY OVER.
It is clear Market of Choice acknowledges our health is in danger since mask requirements are in place by law, and glove requirements are in place for employees and vendors. When masks, gloves and other PPE are no longer REQUIRED FOR OUR SAFETY, then and only then should Hazard Pay be removed.
We demand the same meeting Rick Wright previously agreed to in email, which has yet to happen, to discuss this as soon as possible. Our polite request for said meeting has led to being ghosted by corporate at all levels.
Why is this important?
We are essential workers, "superheroes" by corporate's own admission. They gave us t-shirts that say so, it must be official! The t-shirts request people to stay 6 feet away from workers on the floor. This is not enforced. Wearing a mask is not enforced. Our front line employees are being verbally abused and harassed by people not wearing masks. Our lives are in danger every day, every time we clock in. This isn't metaphorical, it is a scientific fact. If MoC cannot enforce the actions necessary to keep us safe, the VERY LEAST they can do is help us be financially more secure to offset the very real health insecurity we must endure simply to earn a paycheck, especially with the distribution of racial minorities within MoC to the lower paid departments.
