A request for help from the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO
from my email...
Brothers and Sisters,
Workers at Metcalfe’s Market need your support. After years of stable and mutually successful labor relations, Metcalfe’s Market has hired the most anti-worker law firm in the state to attack their meat department workers who are fighting for a fair contract. These workers are proud members of the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1473 and deserve a fair wage and benefit package.
Click here to send a message to Tim and Kevin Metcalfe. Encourage them to respect their workers and stop their intimidation tactics.
The reason for the attack is simple: GREED. The company is willing to spend unlimited amounts on union-busting lawyers to silence their workers instead of bargaining in good faith with their employees. The Company has even unilaterally implemented a 600% cost increase to employees in health insurance premiums alone!
Click here to let the Metcalfe family know that you want their destructive tactics aimed at silencing their workers to stop.
Last June, meat department workers at Metcalfe Market’s newly acquired store in Madison voted for union representation. These employees are fighting for their first contract and need our support.
These union-busting tactics will not silence the voices of workers. Let’s join together in solidarity and support our brothers and sisters at Metcalfe’s Market. All workers deserve a family sustaining wage with good benefits which is achieved through collective bargaining. Tell the Metcalfe family to stop the unnecessary legal games and get back to selling groceries in the successful business that their employees helped build.
Phil Neuenfeldt, President
Stephanie Bloomingdale, Secretary-Treasurer
