A&P has never been open on Christmas day. This year A&P has decided to stay open on Christmas Day. This is taking one of the most important days of the year away from a lot of our families. By deciding to stay open on Christmas we won't be able to share this important and holy day with our families.
We're required to work on Christmas Eve & Christmas day now, leaving us with no time to spend with our families! This is about standing up for ourselves, about A&P respecting us. We have families too and deserve to spend the day with them!
We were inspired by Anthony Hardwick's petition against Target opening on Thanksgiving which said, "A full holiday with family is not just for the elite of this nation -- all Americans should be able to break bread with loved ones and get a good night's rest!"
We share Anthony's sentiment and say we A&P workers, who work so hard for our customers to enjoy their holidays, deserve to spend the holidays with OUR families! All retail workers and their families deserve respect during the holiday season!
