Rally to Restore Friendliness at New Seasons Market

Date: Saturday, March 10
Time: 11:00am-1:30pm
Location: 1954 SE Division St., Portland, OR (Seven Corners store)

Members of our organization, New Seasons Market Workers' Voice, are holding our second solidarity rally this Saturday and we'd love to see you there! We are holding NSM accountable for the firing of Ryan Gaughan, a long time employee of the company who was fired in early February due to his involvement in concerted activity with his fellow workers in the company. We demand that he be reinstated immediately! We are also calling management to the table to begin negotiating with us to implement a peer-review system, in which employees can appeal disciplinary decisions to a panel of their fellow workers.

You can find out more details about our campaign and demands at our website: http://newseasonsmarketworkersvoice.org/

The NSM Workers' Voice campaign has received an endorsement from Jobs with Justice, and our list of supporting community organizations and allies continues to grow! Come be a part of the movement to bring worker democracy to "The Friendliest Store in Town".

“A group of workers, now called New Seasons Market Workers' Voice, have been campaigning for a more democratic workplace for over 3 years now. When management made the decision to fire Ryan they weren't just getting rid of a 9 and half year committed staff member, they were attempting to silence the voices of their workers. New Seasons drew that line, now we are responding.“

--Noah Johnson-Greenough, Produce Service Manager for New Seasons Market
