Rite Aid Closure Causing Dispute

Posted Tuesday, April 15th 2014 @ 6am  by WVHU News Desk

(Poca, WV)  --  The Teamsters' negotiations with Rite Aid have reached a boiling point after the company announced the closing of the distribution center in Poca.  Both sides have differing opinions on the reason for the closure.  Rite Aid is claiming the closure will allow them to run a more efficient company, while the Teamsters are saying it's to cut the company's payroll.  The closure is expected to occur within the next two years and will force 230 people to find new jobs.
