“I love my job and the work that I do. I have become part of the Food Pavilion family. Knowing that my job was secure [while I fought a serious illness], I could concentrate on getting well and coming back to work.”
–Shawn Brockman, Cashier, 4 years with the company
“Being part of a union enabled me to give my children good health care. It also has made me appreciate paid vacations, a pension and a stable job.” –Celia Flones, 35 years with the company
“Having union wages and benefits allowed me to financially support myself and my kids as a single mom. I didn’t have to worry about taking my kids to the Dr. or paying a bill.”
–Kelli Peksenak, Deli Manager, 31 years with the company
“I’m glad to have worked at a union store. We get good pay and I could work my shifts around our kids’ activities. It was so nice to have insurance and paid vacation all the time I worked. Thanks from the Knight Family.” –Dawn Knight, Checker, 40 years with the company, now mostly retired
