COMMUNITY RALLIES IN SUPPORT OF WORKERS UNLAWFULLY PERMANENTLY REPLACED BY UNFI
Updated On: Dec 20, 2012

UNFI workers and their families, together with members of the labor, environmental, and faith-based communities, gathered outside the Roosevelt Square Whole Foods in Seattle on December 19 to inform consumers about UNFI’s unlawful actions, including the permanent replacement of 72 workers at the company’s Auburn distribution center, and to introduce a boycott of UNFI brands.

The 72 workers, along with another 96 union members standing in solidarity with their displaced co-workers, have been on an unfair labor practice at UNFI since December 10. 

“UNFI has crossed the line by permanently replacing union workers who have bargained in good faith,” said Jeff Johnson, President of the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO. “Employers and right wing-led legislatures in the Midwest may be able to get away with this for now, but this will not stand in Washington State!”

Whole Foods is UNFI's largest customer nationwide.  For more information, visit www.unifdrivenbygreed.com.
