Rite Aid has not increased its contributions to the Northern California jointly administered Union-Employer medical benefit plan in over 12 years. After profiting off of rising health care costs, Rite Aid now claims the existing health care plan for its employees is too expensive.
Management is holding meetings with employees trying to plead its case for cutting their benefits. However, Rite Aid’s recent quarterly earnings report beat analysts’ forecasts with “better-than-expected earnings” (CNBC: Rite Aid jumps more than 9% after reporting better-than-expected earnings).
We will continue to engage with consumers and our community partners, letting them know about Rite Aid’s attempt to cut employees’ benefits. We will also petition customers to move their prescriptions to a Union pharmacy which values and protects its employees.
