CVS, Walgreens staff stage walkout

Employees at some Walgreens and CVS pharmacies are walking off the job until Wednesday to protest working conditions. This is the third labor action by the pharmacy workers in a little over a month. Because they are not part of a union, the scale of the walkout is unclear. Organizers say they are "overwhelmed by calls about closed pharmacies," while the companies say they "haven't seen much of a disruption,"according to CNN. The pharmacists assert that stores are "grossly understaffed" and management expectations unreasonable, making it difficult for customers to get necessary prescriptions.
