UFCW Seeks to Unionize Target Retail Workers

See also

The United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) are focusing efforts on organizing Target workers in the New York, Minnesota and Las Vegas areas with plans to expand further. While Target employees are said to enjoy some of the higher retail industry salaries and better working conditions, the retailer has recently come under attack for its practice of hiring large quantities of part-time status employees. Specifically the company has been accused of cutting the hours of formerly full-time workers to part-time status, while continuously bringing in new employees. Part-time status workers are not entitled to health and other company sponsored benefits. According to some employee accounts, those interested in working full-time status are receiving less than ten scheduled hours per week. The crunch has led many Target employees to still need public assistance, such as food stamps or Medicaid to supplement income loss.
