retail news in context, analysis with attitude

D'Agostino's, the New York-based 13-store supermarket chain, announced that its employees, members of the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), have unanimously ratified a new three-year contract.

The new deal reportedly expands the number of part-time employees guaranteed a 20-hour work week, as well as giving them raises and improved benefits packages.

The employees' previous contract expired more than a year ago, and they have been working with monthly contract extensions.

I hope this is not a case of "the good news is you have a new contract, but the bad news is you're shipping out on the Titanic."
