Just in time for May Day! According to these fliers that were littered all over a sidewalk in front of a Walgreens in Bushwick last night, the mega drug store, “despite having over $14 Billion in sales,” is allegedly building new chains in NYC with “non-union labor and out of state contractors.” The Carpenters Local 926 is urging an all out boycott, claiming that the prescription-filling franchise isn’t supporting the city, “IF WALGREENS REFUSES TO SUPPORT NYC, WHY SHOULD WE SUPPORT THEM? Find a Drug Store that cares about working families. Bring your business there.” This call for action comes on the heels of the nation’s largest drugstore chain finalizing its 15-year lease at One Times Square, that’s the massive office tower that hosts the annual dropping of the ball for New Year’s Eve.
