BREAKING: New guidance for grocery stores in Massachusetts. Our UFCW union has been pushing for stronger safety standards and we are pleased to report that some of the new measures include:
– Each grocery store shall limit occupancy to 40% of its maximum permitted occupancy level, INCLUDING workers
– Grocery store staff shall monitor the number of customers entering and exiting the store
– Grocery stores should communicate with customers through in store signage and public service announcements
– Grocery stores should designate one-way aisles and identify them with signage
We will continue to advocate for the health and safety of both grocery employees and the communities they work hard to serve.
