retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Queens Gazette reports that “the National Labor Relations Board last week approved a request by a group of FreshDirect employees to hold a union election at FreshDirect’s Long Island City warehouse.”

An election is expected to held later this month. As the Gazette writes, “Company officials last August balked at a request by 23 FreshDirect maintenance workers who called for unionization of the plant. Officials said the workers’ attempt to join Teamsters Local 805 was ‘inappropriate’ because the group did not include all FreshDirect warehouse production employees.”
