I don’t think all stores have fully recover from the last strike.

I don’t support the grocery workers strike(s) and I proved it last time every time I crossed their picket lines.

They have a job so simple a caveman could do it and they want to strike?

Personally, I prefer shopping at Trader Joe’s, as the ones here in Jersey are nonunion (for now).

They’re also the only grocery in New Jersey that sells wine. Although the law states (since prohibition was repealed) that grocery stores are prohibited from selling liquor, the law only covers stores over a certain square footage. TJ’s is just under the limit, so it gets away with selling 3 Buck Chuck in NJ.

If they authorize a strike, these have to be the stupidest workers on earth. During the last strike, the union screwed them big time. Yeah, the stores lost millions too, but the workers were the ones that couldn’t pay their bills. Most took other jobs elsewhere and didn’t come back after the strike. But hey, it’s a free country, do what you want....

Their wines are half price, and their cheese is unbeatable!

I love TJ’s, but they’ve had a lot of recalls lately for weird germs in their food, the latest was something in the chopped onions to go. Plus the dogfood, and the green onions or salad awhile back, if I recall correctly. And I think one more. I guess I need to grow my own food...

We only shop at union stores when the union is on strike.

Grocery workers?
You mean like in supermarkets?
70’ish bag boys, or the 12 through 16’ish bag boys?
Or the 18 year old check out ladies who work before or after their classes at the Junior college?
Or the shelf stockers, who do little at low speed and questioned accuracy?
OK. I get it.
The lottery ticket sales lady? No?
Who are the grocery workers and are they unionized, and why?
