As more and more non-union stores open and unionized stores close our strength as a union diminishes.
What can you do?
Educate fellow members, friends and communities about the Market Share issue.
Shop union stores.
Participate in Local 1500 picket lines, boycotts and actions.
Stop Big Box Store growth (Walmart, Target)
Ensure New York communities are supplied with healthy, affordable food and sustainable good paying jobs!
Stop large non-union competitors from growing (Aldi, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's)
Without control of the market share, wages and benefits go down.
If we cannot achieve a level playing field as Market Share slips, we lose big!
