business news in context, analysis with attitude

Published reports say that the National Pharmacists Association has filed a lawsuit against Walgreen, accusing the retailer of unfair labor practices.

The suit is linked to the current strike against the drugstore chain. The union represents about 1,200 pharmacists in 400 stores, and the strike was called because of concerns that low staffing could be having an impact on consumer safety. The union now says that the chain has been calling striking workers trying to coerce them into returning to work.

Some of the pharmacists have returned to work, saying that the union is out of touch with store conditions.
