The contract would provide workers with a guaranteed day off each workweek and eliminate so-called “suicide shifts” (or “squeezing shifts,” as the company calls it) in which workers do eight-hour workdays plus four hours of overtime. for their next shift, according to a Frito-Lay statement given to CNN Business.
Earlier this month, Shelton said that “workers don’t have enough time to see their families, do chores, run errands, or even get a good night’s sleep.”
Frito-Lay was previously a union member. Claims about long hours are “highly exaggerated”.
“We have always spoken in good faith with union representatives to address the most pressing concerns raised about working hours and overtime,” Frito-Lay said in a statement. “We believe our approach to resolving these strikes demonstrates how we listen to our employees and that when concerns are raised, they are taken seriously and addressed.”
