Creating a safe space is a shared community responsibility. We call it “the third place” – a warm and welcoming environment outside of our homes and workspaces where we connect and build community. We welcome all who use our spaces as intended, are considerate of others, communicate with respect, and act responsibly.
We also respect everyone’s legal right to engage in activity or peaceful protest. For safety reasons and to allow customer access any such activities should take place outside the store and away from front doors or drive-thrus. While partners may peacefully protest, behaviors that are in violation of our employment contract and code of conduct may result in disciplinary action or separation. A partner’s involvement in union activity does not exempt them from adhering to the policies and procedures that keep our partners and customers safe.
