Pharmacies & Drugstores Industries
Working in drug stores like Duane Reade, long-serving neighborhood pharmacies, and in pharmacies located inside of supermarkets, Local 338 members work as pharmacy techs and pharmacists, as well as cashiers and a number of roles which keeps these stores operational.
In their work, Local 338 members ensure that the public has access to their medicine and other important goods that keep their families healthy.
Over the last several years, Local 338 has led union organizing campaigns at major drug store companies like CVS. We also work closely with our sisters and brothers from Workers United Local 340A in regard to negotiating our contracts with Duane Reade and ensuring that standards and benefits were maintained after the company was acquired by Walgreen’s.
