UFCW 655 organizes first Dollar General in America

https://labortribune.com/ufcw-655-organizes-first-dollar-general-in-america/

Auxvasse, MO – Organizing history was made in Missouri recently when UFCW Local 655 organized the first Dollar General store in America.

“These hard-working men and women voted for a better life,” said Local 655 President David Cook. “They voted for the union difference, which means a voice at work, better wages and benefits, and the power of uniting with their co-workers.”

The 66 percent vote for Local 655 made that clear, Cook said. “Dollar General workers felt uniting with the union is the road to achieving the American dream of becoming a solid part of the working middle class,” he said

“I believe this is a positive sign for Missouri when middle class workers everywhere go to the polls next year to defeat the phony ‘right-to-work (for less)’ law that ill-informed legislators are tying to force onto Missouri workers,” Cook added.

1. Wow!

 

That is a huge move.

Even more so because I expected that to be some suburb of St Louis or KC where unions have more influence, but it’s actually a small town in central MO!
