(en) Black Rose / Rosa Negra - Portland: Major new developments in the Little Big Union's campaign

Date Mon, 24 Jun 2019 08:11:50 +0300

Little Big Union LBU_IWW ---- ** ELECTION TIME! ** This week marks three months since the Little Big Union publicly began raising our collective voice to bargain with our bosses at Little Big Burger. It has been three months of elation, but also disappointment. Elation, because in three short months we have seen our power as workers materialize when we come together to stick up for one another and build a community. Disappointment, because our bosses have actively impeded us every step of the way. Little Big Burger has publicly stated a "welcoming stance" to the union despite delaying, rescheduling, then outright refusing to meet with union workers. All the while they have initiated a contract with a union busting law firm, fired longtime, hardworking employees for legally advocating for their own workplace improvements, and, most recently, flown in a union busting consultant from the east coast to mislead and intimidate employees. There is however a path forward in sight.

This weekend we received a response to our appeal for election from the National Labor Relations Board. After careful consideration, the board decided to rule in our favor of having a mail-in union election at the twelve Little Big Burgers in the Portland-Metro area and surrounding suburbs. For workers that means ballots are being mailed out July 1 and are due to be counted on July 23.

This is a huge win for worker turnout in the election!
A mail-in ballot means voting free from electioneering, done on workers' own time.

Little Big Union is affiliated with the Portland chapter of Industrial Workers of the World
