Albertsons Companies Extends Appreciation Pay for Front Line Associates
Albertsons Companies has extended its Appreciation Pay program for all non-union and union front line associates through May 2, 2020. Structured to recognize the hard-working team members on the front lines, the company’s e-commerce pickers and drivers, store associates, distribution center associates and manufacturing plant associates are receiving a temporary $2 per-hour-worked increase, above and beyond their regular hourly pay and overtime.
The temporary increase was requested by the company’s division presidents and supported by the board of directors and the company’s owners, including Cerberus Capital Management. The company will continue to evaluate the situation on an ongoing basis and make changes as necessary.
