A&P Workers Ask: Why, Big Y?

A&P workers and supporters--including Connecticut Attorney General and Senator-elect Blumenthal--will be rallying tomorrow in front of Big Y in West Hartford, Connecticut to ask Big Y to make a real commitment to their communities.

A&P workers lost their jobs when Big Y bought their stores--and wouldn't hire many of the former A&P employees to do their old jobs in their old stores! In addition, Big Y laid off many of its own workers as well, even when they were expanding.

Workers are wondering Why, Big Y? Are our communities best served by working families out of work this holiday season? Will Big Y do the right thing and make a real commitment to providing good jobs with real stability in our communities?
