The following is a letter from Berkeley Bowl workers:
Dear Berkeley Bowl Customers:
Berkeley Bowl has hired an expensive union busting firm to get rid of our Union. This isn't the first time. In 2003-2004 the National Labor Relations Board found Berkeley Bowl guilty of violating numerous labor laws in the workplace. They then ordered management to negotiate and sign our first Union Contract. Among those engaged in violating the law was our current store manager, David Craib.
Now, Mr. Craib is telling employees that they don't need a union (without a union, workers could be at risk of losing benefits and wages). He is also telling employees to vote no during the upcoming election on June 23rd - to stop being represented by UFCW-Local 5. In other words, he is asking the workers to vote against themselves, THE UNION, so that they can become powerless At-Will employees.
Berkeley Bowl Management: Stop attempting to destroy the Union, get rid of the union busters and negotiate and sign an improved union contract with your employees.
