This is bull shit. Unions representing supposed "co-op" employees. You actually think the Union doesn't have lawyers working on their side writing their greedy policy? Get real! In Brattleboro VT the coop is the real deal--there are no unions. The people voted the unions out of their co-op in Portland or Eugene maybe Ashland...
As long as you have the large grocery store mentality through the unions grubbing money to the tune of a 15% pay hike this year on the North Coast for it's employees -- as a little insight the co-op has raised employee pay 5% for the past three years. Now the union wants that to triple this year?
The bent of your article is obviously slanted in a direction of the workers but not towards the organization as a whole. You should consider supporting the management. The co-op employees have it way better than most grocery stores and if you look more closely you'll see that the agenda of the union is to put the small grocer like co-op out of business. It's clear to me that at Albertsons they haven't lobbied like this. So why do you think their playing such hard ball with our whole foods?
Just keep up you hard work and see how happy Caliman's gonna be when the co-op is owned by big grocery!! Meanwhile I'll be growing my own food..
