1. The company will use language that “third-parties” the union.
NSLU is an independent union of you and your coworkers from across the company.
The union eﬀort is entirely run by New Seasons workers.
2. The company may claim that you already have a say in the business.
In the past, entire departments have been eliminated without consulting the workers. After we win our election, changes like these become mandatory bargaining subjects which the company is legally required to negotiate over with workers.
3. The company may try to make it seem like unionization is inviting uncertainty.
Currently, the terms of our employment are subject to change at the employer's discretion.
Union contracts are legally binding. After we win our election, we will fight for a contract that gives us a greater say over the wealth we produce.
4. The company may sow doubt about our union’s ability to bargain effectively.
Any collective bargaining agreement that applies to you will be voted on by you.
Would you and your coworkers vote "yes" on an agreement with inferior pay and benefits than your current terms of employment?
