Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  1. What is “Your Bread and Butter?”

“Your Bread and Butter” is a campaign to raise the standards for everyone in the supermarket industry — for workers, employers, shoppers and communities.

Through a wide variety of communication tools, including this website, “Your Bread and Butter” is making more people aware of the importance of high standards for wages, benefits, cleanliness and service at their local grocery stores.

As people become better informed, they are empowered to work together to raise the bar so everyone wins.

1. When was the site launched and what is the reasoning behind it?

The site was launched in September 2011 to raise awareness among workers and the general public of the importance of setting higher standards in the industry. We ask the rhetorical question, “Who benefits from higher standards?” The answer is that everyone benefits: the workers, their families, the shoppers, the employers and the entire community.

Visitors to the site are able to compare the wages, benefits and working conditions of various supermarket chains. They are encouraged to invest themselves in the cause by describing their opinions and experiences as employees and shoppers. And they are briefed on developments in the supermarket industry, including negotiations with retail food employers.

We expect all workers to realize they can have better pay and health care if they are able to bargain collectively. And we expect shoppers at grocery stores to be more conscious of the way those stores treat their workers.

In addition to the website, our campaign will employ the entire spectrum of communication tools, including handbills, Facebook updates, information cards, newsletters, contests, direct mailings, radio and TV commercials, door hangers, buttons, T-shirts, balloons, banners — you name it.
