Tonight I was unjustly fired from Walgreens. Many of you may know me from there, I worked in the Beauty Dept for a while and have most recently been working in the Photo Dept.
I was fired because last night a manager left their management keys in the register. I put them in my smock so no one would steal them and returned them to the manager as soon as she returned.
Someone from the corporate office showed up and talked with me for a while. Then they reviewed the security tapes and agreed that what I said was true and that I had infact, not stolen from the company. But they said that they would leave the decision up to the store manager as to what would happen with me.
A little while later I was terminated, forced to clean out my locker, and escorted off the premesis.
I am interested in holding a protest. I've always loved Walgreens but this time they've gone a step too far. This Saturday from 1 p.m. until perhaps 2 or 3 p.m. (depending on the turnout) I will be protesting in front of Walgreens.
Please feel free to show up. I suggest that people park in the dirt parking lot behind Walgreens (access on Fairground Rd.) and join me on the sidewalk infront of Walgreens.
Come an protest my wrongful termination, or protest corporate America or whatever your gripe may be. And be sure to bring picket signs! My title of suggestion is: Shame on Walgreens! or Not The Pharmacy I Trust. The latter is a good play on their slogan which is: 'Walgreens, the pharmacy America trusts."
I would just like to remind people that protesting on the walgreens property is not allowed and neither is parking in their lot to protest. Let's be as responsible as possible about this.
If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to call me at (802) 579 2051. And tell anyone else who is interested that they may call me there too if they have any questions.
Bring as many people as possible. The more people there are, the more our cause can be heard.
If protesting isn't your thing but you would still like to complain/comment to Walgreens you may reach their Corporate office at:
200 Wilmot Road
Deerfield, IL 60015
Do not call the local store as they will only refer you to this contact information.
