Statement: CVS Addresses Employment in RI

Thursday, March 28, 2013

 

CVS released the following statement to GoLocalProv in response to the March 26 article, "CVS Threatens Job Loss Because of Chafee Tax Cuts."

A recent GoLocalProv article about CVS Caremark includes misinformation about the company and our current level of employment in Rhode Island. Here are the facts:

To manage our distribution center (i.e., warehouse) workforce during normal fluctuations in productivity, a small number of employees will voluntarily take time off for up to two weeks. At the end of the time-off period, the employees resume their positions. This occurs a few times a year throughout our network of distribution centers across the country and it is not unique to our Rhode Island distribution centers.

Also, we are not making any widespread layoffs in our Rhode Island operations. Staff reductions and additions are part of the normal course of business throughout the year. In fact, we are continuing to add jobs in the state and we currently have over 500 open positions in Rhode Island, more than half of which are in our corporate offices.

Michael DeAngelis is the Director of Public Relations for CVS Caremark.
