Organizing Colectivo Workers Update

IBEW Local Unions 49 (Wisconsin) and 1220 (Illinois) campaign to organize employees of Colectivo Coffee is heating up. They recently filed a petition for election with the NLRB for representation of three hundred plus Colectivo employees.

Organizers had previously asked other Union members to show their support by frequenting locations and ordering their coffee “IBEW Strong” The company is paying an advisor obtained through Labor Relations Institute, a union avoidance (spelled buster) consultancy. The organizing committee is now asking that you order your coffee through the app typing UnionYes and your name without any spaces. This will help motivate our supporters and influence undecided employees to vote yes for the union.

Visit a shop and help some hard working coffee slingers have a voice in their workplace.

There are five locations throughout the Chicagoland area and sixteen in Wisconsin.
