Supermarket staff, community organizations, workers’ rights groups, union activists, supporters and elected officials gathered for a rally on Tuesday (July 30) in a parking lot outside the East Meadow store of the notorious non-union supermarket chain Best Market to call attention to the employer’s poor record of low pay, minimal benefits, gender discrimination and an uncertain future for many.

The rally was a collaborative effort that involved the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 338, the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU), Long Island Jobs with Justice, and the United Association for Labor Education (UALE) Northeast Regional Summer School for Women.
