Schnucks faces union charges over warehouse layoffs

The International Brotherhood of Teamsters has filed two charges against Schnuck Markets Inc. with the National Labor Relations Board.

The labor group said the St. Louis-based grocery chain has violated the National Labor Relations Act by enticing union members to opt out of their collective bargaining rights and by removing from company property union members who were distributing information.

Schnucks announced in April that it plans to cut 190 jobs when it opens a new distribution center this summer.

The supermarket operator previously said it would replace union workers with staff from a third-party logistics provider whose workers are paid up to $11 per hour, compared with current union pay of $14 per hour to $22 per hour.
