In December, 2002, workers at Borders Bookstore in downtown, Ann
Arbor, Michigan voted 51 to 4 in favor of forming a union.
Borders workers formed a union to obtain fair wages and
benefits, to have a voice in their workplace, and to protect the
quality and tradition of their store.
Borders Inc. has refused to negotiate in good faith and the union went on strike November 8th. The workers are protesting Borders' unfair labor practices (including firing long-term employees to intimidate workers, hiring a union busting law firm, and refusing to negotiate on issues such as fulltime status, overtime, seniority, vacation, or scheduling).
[UPDATE: Action resolved.]
