UFCW boycotts Macy's

Just what a retailer needs during a recession:
A labor dispute between a union and one of the major stores at Tacoma Mall is heating up. Last week, members of United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 367 voted to approve a strike against Macy’s. The two sides have been negotiating since January. Local 367 represents about 240 workers at Macy’s, most in the store at Tacoma Mall, and about 15 in the furniture gallery on the other side of Interstate 5.

They are awaiting permission from the international union headquarters before going out on strike. This could include calling upon the public to boycott Macy’s. Local members would prefer not to do so, he noted.

Stay tuned.
