PCC NATURAL MARKETS ISSUES STATEMENT IN SUPPORT OF WORKERS ON STRIKE AT UNFI
Updated On: Dec 21, 2012

The PCC Natural Markets has issued a strongly-worded statement in support of 168 workers on strike at its main supplier, United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI).  

In its statement, the Seattle-based natural foods cooperative asserts its respect of workers to "freely engage in collective bargaining, the right to equitable pay, fair benefits, and safe working conditions" and it urges UNFI to "bargain in good faith" with its workers. 

The PCC also says that, although it is still accepting UNFI deliveries, it is "exploring other long-term options," suggesting that it may seek another supplier if UNFI continues to violate federal law.  

Included in the statement is a letter to UNFI CEO Steven Spinner raising concern about UNFI's treatment of workers and urging the company to work toward a settlement with its workers.
