Support Of Northgate Gonzalez, Vallarta Market Workers To Form A Union Via Card Check Neutrality


Resolution 13-07.30


WHEREAS, Grocery workers across the State of California play a critical role in the economy, working holidays, weekends, and long hours to provide our families with the essential foods that we consume daily; and

WHEREAS, Grocers such as Northgate Gonzalez Markets and Vallarta Supermarkets have achieved success in the Latino grocery business.  The ever growing Latino community is their number one target base and yet these markets often forget the backbone of their success are the workers that report to work in their stores day in and day out who deserve a work environment with dignity and respect, and

WHEREAS, we acknowledge some of these markets give back to the communities in which they serve. So it is now time for Northgate Gonzalez and Vallarta Supermarkets to act in the best interest of their company and our communities and be the champions for the Latino workforce by allowing their workers to unionize via card check neutrality, and

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the California Democratic Party support the rights of the workers at Northgate Gonzalez and Vallarta Supermarkets to organize and bargain collectively; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we call upon the Northgate Gonzalez and Vallartas Supermarkets to recognize the rights of those who work for them and allow those workers to choose freely to unionize, without fear, intimidation, retaliation, or coercion via card check neutrality.
