Stand with Bookshop Santa Cruz Workers as they Organize a Union
by Emergency Workplace Organizing Committee
Thursday Dec 10th, 2020 2:24 PM
Bookshop Santa Cruz booksellers and other non-managerial staff have asked that store owner Casey Coonerty Protti voluntarily recognize their union with the Communication Workers of America Local 9423. Sign this petition in support: Stand with Bookshop Santa Cruz Workers as they Organize a Union!

Why is this important?

Bookshop Santa Cruz workers, who are not currently offered health insurance by their employer, have concerns about the management’s inconsistent communication regarding health and safety at the store, as well as concerns about the rising cost of living in Santa Cruz and the sustainability of the store. The workers want job security, an option for healthcare, and additional employee support systems.

The workers’ organizing committee says, “We felt we could garner greater support as a collective rather than as individuals. 2020 has been a difficult year for small businesses everywhere and we hope to collaborate with management to create a sustainable path forward for one of the only independent bookstores in the area.”
