On Dec. 23, workers at MOM’s Organic Market in College Park, Md., joined UFCW Local 400 for a better life.
The workers chose to organize with UFCW Local 400 because they sought wages and benefits that better reflected their contributions to the workplace. As they move towards negotiating their first contract, they hope to fight for better health insurance and family sustaining wages, with a wage scale based on years of service and that addresses cost of living concerns.
The workers’ organizing committee released the following statement:
“We, the workers of MOM’s Organic Market College Park, are proud to have formed our union today and are looking forward to the next steps in building our union. We thank the community of College Park and our co-workers at our fellow MOM’s Organic Market stores – union and non-union alike – for their solidarity as we fought for this union. We are proud of what we have built together as colleagues and look forward to showing you all what we will build in the new year together.”
