I am a union worker at the Pfizer plant in Pearl River.We were notified that we would be laid of on December 8,2009. I work as a packaging line operator. We have a scheduled shut down on December 21,2009.That means there are only 7 work days untl that time. Then we go into the holiday shutdown. The manufacturing department would open back up on January 4, 2010. We are disappointed that Pfizer will not let us work until the end of this year, so that we can get the holiday pay which we are entitled to receive.
This is a planned event that Pfizer,I am quite sure has already allocated the money in their budget to pay out since the begining of the year.
We tried to get through to the directors of the departments and labor relations to help them understand our needs.
We dedicated ourselves to making Pearl River one of the sites to remain open. We did this by being productive and meeting the demands of our customers.
It's sad enough that as union workers we aren't entitled to recieve severence packages, but on top of it all the company has the nerve to take away our holiday pay!
