General Coordinator Statement on Union Organizing

The General Coordinators, the management team of the Park Slope Food Coop, recognize the right of any group of people to form legal associations to meet their collective needs and support their mutual benefit. This includes the right of Coop employees to choose to organize or join a union in the workplace.

The decision to associate, or not, is up to each employee. The Coop’s General Coordinators, Coop Member-Owners, and the Board of Directors do not have a role in the decision to unionize.

The General Coordinators will work to ensure that the decision to unionize is an employee decision and that staff can participate in all efforts to organize. Following Coop principles, we would like to see that any decision by our staff will be made democratically.
