Schnucks completes layoffs at Bridgeton warehouse

Schnuck Markets Inc. completed the layoffs of union employees at its warehouse in Bridgeton Sunday night.

The company announced in April that it planned to eliminate 190 jobs at its Bridgeton Distribution Center as it moved to a more modern distribution center, which will be operated by a third-party company. Members of Teamsters Local 688 had launched a boycott of Schnucks stores over the summer in response to the layoffs.

The total number of laid-off employees is less than 190, according to the grocer, partly due to attrition.

Some of the laid-off employees are considering union jobs elsewhere within the company, according to Schnucks, some took severance packages or retention bonuses, and more than 50 employees left the company.
