September 24, 2018

CAMP HILL, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 24, 2018--After renewed negotiations that have taken place over the last few days, the UFCW and Rite Aid are pleased to announce that they have reached a three-year agreement, covering over 5,900 Rite Aid associates at 357 stores across Southern California.

As a result of this agreement, which requires ratification by associates, the UFCW has lifted its call for a boycott of Rite Aid stores and encourages shoppers to return their support to Rite Aid. Rite Aid is the only 100% unionized neighborhood drugstore in Southern California and has partnered successfully with the UFCW for decades in meeting the needs of associates and customers in what has become a very competitive marketplace. This spirit of cooperation was the foundation for the agreement reached today.
