    REI Workers in North Carolina Go on Strike, Protest Unfair Labor Practices

    May 5, 2023 // REI workers at a store in Durham, N.C. are going on strike to protest management’s response to their unionization efforts. Employees at the store filed a petition for a union election with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) on April 13 to be represented by the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) Local 1208. They said they are striking because of an Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) charge they filed against management, citing “illegal discipline of workers who are involved in the union organization efforts,” a release said. According to a release, REI put an active union organizer on “‘administrative leave’ without clear information about his status.” The employees are also calling on management to “cease manipulating the election process.”
