F&G Don’t Care What Customers Think

The latest “threat” to replace associates who have walked off the job (this is the third time) with permanent replacements shows that the Board and F&G haven’t heard our beloved customers collective voice or worse, they could care less what you think. You have been all over social media and also you have voted with your feet by boycotting our stores until ATD is back in charge.

F&G released a statement through their PR firm O’Neill and Assoc that associates have until Monday to come back to work without penalty or be replace permanently, where have we heard this before. They are planning a job fair to replace, not only the people at the warehouse, drivers and office personnel but also Store Directors and Asst Managers. This latest group is an interesting turn since zero Store Directors or Asst Managers have walked off the job. The fact that their stores are empty of products is not their fault they haven’t been getting deliveries. When the warehouse associates and drivers walked out almost two weeks ago F&G immediately replaced the drivers with temp drivers and temp selectors in the warehouse. So why haven’t the loads been getting to the stores? Because these temporary drivers and selectors can’t hold a candle to our drivers and selectors. Our grocery warehouse alone pumps out a million cases of product a week and yet these temps can barely manage 15 deliveries a day compared to the 120 deliveries a day that is average for our dedicated workers.

This latest statement shows the disconnect with F&G, they are under the impression that if they get the stores full of product the customers will come back in droves. They either haven’t been listening to you, our beloved customers or they don’t care. They have underestimated us at every turn and now they are underestimating the strength of your boycott. To us, that is insulting, we fully understand how important our customers are to our business and we also understand the sacrifice this is having on your finances. Please continue your boycott until ATD is back in charge and we promise to get up and running in no time and to show our gratitude for your continued loyalty.

They may not care about you but we care a great deal about you and will be eternally grateful to you.
