On April 21, more than 300 Bon Appétit Management Company food service workers in St. Louis voted to join UFCW Local 655. The workers serve the students of Washington University and were concerned about wages and working conditions. Bon Appétit Management Company is a subsidiary of the Compass Group.
“We are thrilled that hundreds of workers providing food to the students and faculty of Washington University in Saint Louis have elected to come together to get the better life they deserve,” said UFCW Local 655 President David Cook. “These individuals provide a vital service to Washington University and have clearly spoken that they want the better wages and working conditions that a union contract will afford them. The students of Washington University overwhelmingly supported this action and we are excited to do our part for more hard-working Missourians.”
