Local One Files Class Action Grievance Against Tops for Ending Hero's Pay

Local One is hereby filing a class action grievance on behalf of all of our members covered by each collective bargaining agreement in effect with Top’s Friendly Markets. The basis for the grievance includes but is not limited to the fact that Tops has unilaterally terminated Hero/Hazard pay in a manner that is discriminatory to our members, is in violation of the established practice requiring the continuation of Hero/Hazard payments to our members and without negotiating the continuation and/or termination of such payments with Local One. 


It is Local One’s position that Tops continue payment of Hero/Hazard payments to all our members and to make each member whole for any and all Hero/Hazard payments that have been terminated.
