Rite Aid, a US-based drugstore chain, has been found to have acted in bad faith after cutting health insurance benefits for some workers without negotiating with the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 8-Golden State (UFCW).
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) found Rite Aid unlawfully cut benefits for retirees and future part-time workers at stores in Northern California and Nevada. Rite Aid had claimed that it was at an impasse in negotiations with the union, but the NLRB found that Rite Aid had not bargained in good faith with the union and that the two parties were not at an impasse.
