Request to Review Your Pharmacy
Each month our Staffing Review Committee meets with Walgreen Co. to review staffing hours.  In these meetings, requests to have selected pharmacies reviewed are submitted, as well as other concerns our members bring to our attention.

We want all our members to feel that they can reach out to us, not just about their pharmacy or a grievance, but to help inform and educate us on what is happening around them.  Connect with us here and we will hear you.
