Over the past few months, at coffee shops and on camping trips, we have been speaking to each other as REI Berkeley employees about the reasons we love working at REI and the ways we can improve our store for current and future employees.
After a union victory, we will have the opportunity to bargain over our wages, benefits, and working conditions. Our conversations as a committee and with our coworkers have shown us that we want:
|A collective voice||A more balanced pay structure|
|Job security||Greater accountability of healthcare|
|A better direct relationship with senior leaders||Addressing the misclassification of full-time employees|
|Transparency around promotions and job responsibilities||Easier access to healthcare, regardless of tenure|
