While the fate of the Hyde Park Co-Op is still being decided, the fall out from this dustup has a real price.
If the Co-Op is shuttered, their employees will lose their jobs and benefits with no severance package to speak of.
There’s a happy new year for you.
One would think that the former Co-Op employees would be able to apply for positions at the new store. Rumor has it that either a Treasure Island or Dominick’s is coming to the 55th Street space.
Still it’s an uncertain future for a lot of hard working people.
As I’m going on my fourth month of unemployment I completely understand what these good folks may be facing.
It would have been nice if the former leadership of the Co-Op would have based their decisions not only on the health of the store but on it’s impact of the employees.
25 year lease indeed.
