"COSTCO at Rego Park is situated in a place where house space is scarce. People don't buy items in bulk that don't fit in their apartments. Employee hours are being squeezed. No seasonal workers have been hired.
It is too important for Costco NOT to close, but the Rego Park location is dying. Workers have had hours stolen. Their schedules are changed randomly and they are being written up for little or no reason.
Workers have had positive feedback from major unions.
Crapper, if u are interested, I will keep u up with details.
"I set up a blog about the store. I am not a big fan of unions but I resent the attempts of Costco to demoralize employees to get them to quit to cut payroll. Just keeping you informed.
Wait, you mean it sucks to work at Costco and there's no union? Weren't the politicians lining up to cut the ribbon here? The same characters that opposed Walmart at the same location. A bit of a double standard, don't you think?
“This is a great thing for my district,” said Councilman Danny Dromm (D-Jackson Heights). “It brings in much-needed jobs.”
