[Rumorsville]: Will Food Coop Members Be Suspended For Missing Shifts During Hurricane Sandy?

There's a reason why we've referred to the Park Slope Food Coop as militant sanctimonious fascist hippies. If this rumor we're hearing is true -- that members who missed shifts during Hurricane Sandy will be punished -- then they very well deserve that title. The rumor comes via Sandy Report, a site dedicated to areas affected by Sandy and all of her nastiness. Here's what they had to say:

The Park Slope Food Co-op had to close October 29th and half of the day October 30th because of Hurricane Sandy.   The co-op, with their typically unyielding policies, never let their 15,000+ members know that because they were unable to work those shifts they are now all on something called, “alert.”  This means the clock is ticking for them as they all face suspensions if their shift isn’t made up within the next 10 days.  If members cannot make this happen they should speak to the office right away to ask for clemency.  The idea is to enact fair and just standards for all. 

Can any of you Coop members confirm or deny?
