Rite Aid is Wrecking America...We're Fighting Back!

The Rite Aid drug stores employ thousands of workers who are fighting for more respect and a voice on the job. Since Rite Aid’s CEO John Standley doubled his compensation to over $4 million, he’s been trying to cut pay and benefits for workers at the company’s retail stores and distribution centers:.
  • In Ohio, Rite Aid officials are going after the health care benefits for retail store employees.
  • In Pennsylvania, Rite Aid workers are trying to get a decent contract without big benefit cuts.
  • In Rome, NY, Rite Aid just announced they are closing a union warehouse and going non-union.
  • In Lancaster, CA, 500 warehouse workers have been fighting for over 5 years to get a union contract.

Let’s help these workers who are standing up and fighting back!

  2. Send Rite Aid CEO John Standley a message.
