Response to marble falls (Original post)

20. Not so fast. The company is anti-union.

WinCo is an anti-union company. Workers are forbidden to join labor unions. Therefore they do not have the backing of a union to assure fair wages, benefits, job security, or labor conditions. The local United Food and Commercial Workers Union has an ongoing boycott of WinCo. "Our ongoing boycott of WinCo has received support from residents all over the area. Once they understand the negative business practices used by this company, they applaud our efforts to rid them from our communities," said Jacques Loveall, Director of Organizing for UFCW 588.

As indicated in the excerpt, there is an ongoing union sponsored boycott of WinCo due to its ant-labor practices. And don't you realize that without the workers being protected by a union that the company would be free to take away any benefits at any time it chooses? I do not trust non union companies like Winco. Of course my comment is in no way an endorsement of Walamrt which as far as I'm concerned is the spawn of the devil.
