Anniversary Sale starts on May 17th, and it’s their biggest sale of the year. <strong>We want to make a big impression on REI’s Board of Directors during this sale</strong>, as REI has been union busting for years and they need to know that Co-op members and shoppers across the country won’t stand for this behavior.</p> <p><strong>Please sign our petition and demand that REI Leadership negotiate a contract in good faith by the end of this year.</strong> By adding your name below, you show solidarity for REI workers across the country and let the Co-op know you won’t settle for their refusal to bargain.</p> <p>We’re asking for your signature because enough is enough. We’ve been fighting for years to reach a first contract, and the company won’t meet us halfway. We even brought the bargaining table right to REI’s doorstep to make negotiations easy - but leadership never took their seat.</p> <p>How wrong is it that we’ve gotten to this point? REI claims they’re a progressive employer that “starts from a place of respect” and believes we can “go further together.” Yet, they fight against our collective voice at every turn and refuse to hear our ideas for a more equitable Co-op.</p> <p><strong>The more names we add to our petition during this year’s Anniversary Sale, the more we ensure that REI’s leadership hears our demands. </strong>If we show the Board that thousands of customers and Co-op members value a unionized workforce, REI will have no choice but to do the right thing and meet us at the bargaining table.</p> </blockquote> <p><a href="https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/tell-the-rei-board-stop-union-busting-bargain-a-fair-contract" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Sign the petition at Action Network</a></p> <p> </p> </div> </div> <div> <div class="label">Insert an image into the text</div> <div> <div> <figure class="image no-upscale"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2024-05/rei-stop_union_busting_cover.jpg" width="2895" height="1628" alt="&quot;&quot;" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </figure> </div> </div> </div> <div> <div class="label">Publication date</div> <div><time datetime="2024-05-22T12:00:00Z">May 22, 2024, 12:00 pm</time> </div> </div> Wed, 22 May 2024 19:17:50 +0000 Josh Davis 7106 at https://geo.coop https://geo.coop/gleanings/tell-rei-board-stop-union-busting-bargain-fair-contract#comments
