UFCW and UFCW/RWDSU members participated in a national day of action on July 11 to show their support for Guitar Center workers. Members leafleted customers and talked to workers at Guitar Center stores about workers joining the UFCW/RWDSU to have a union voice on the job and to also call on the company to bargain in good faith with workers during contract negotiations. Workers at Guitar Center stores in Chicago, New York, and Las Vegas have already voted to join the UFCW/RWDSU.
