Our outreach to resume contract bargaining with Workers United
Advancing our shared goal that union-represented stores see progress toward first contracts in 2024
Our partners are the core of our business, and we are committed to providing everyone who wears the green apron a bridge to a better future. For those partners who have chosen to freely associate and bargain collectively, fulfilling that promise means working earnestly to progress negotiations towards first contracts that address the unique needs of each union-represented store.
That’s why, today, Sara Kelly, chief partner officer, sent a letter to Workers United President Lynne Fox in an earnest attempt to propose a path forward that would allow us to resume productive contract negotiations for our U.S. partners who have chosen to elect union representation.
The letter outlines our desire to reach contracts for represented stores in the coming year and our commitment to conduct bargaining in a way that honors and respects the dignity, individuality and privacy of our partners.
