Teamsters Lobby for Consumer Boycott of Food Chain
Posted On: Feb 07, 2024
Feb. 7, 2024 | WAREHOUSE INDUSTRY | Los Angeles-based Teamsters Local 630 is lobbying for consumers to boycott the Smart & Final food chain, after its Mexican-based owner, a $13 billion company, decided to close two warehouses in Southern California, open a third in Rancho Cucamonga, and make all 600 workers involved re-apply for their jobs. The close-move-and-reapply threat forced the workers, who just voted for Local 630 to represent them, to strike for three weeks last November over company unfair labor practices, Local Secretary-Treasurer Lou Villalvazo said. Seeking and getting community support, including support for the boycott, is a follow-up step. Teamsters Warehouse Division Director Tom Erickson added then: “Chedraui must honor their sacrifices by ensuring their jobs are protected and union rights are upheld. Just because you move workers to a new warehouse doesn’t mean you can rewrite the rules." People’s World
