Workers at the Trader Joe’s grocery store at 1906 28th St. are attempting to unionize after United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7 filed a petition for a union election on their behalf Tuesday.
That makes the Boulder store the third Trader Joe’s in the country to file for an election with the National Labor Relations Board after stores in Minneapolis and Hadley, Mass. The Hadley store will have its election this month. The Minneapolis store will have its election in August. Workers at those locations are forming their own unions; employees in Boulder are trying to join UFCW Local 7.
“They’ve been wanting to do it for a while,” Kim Cordova, UFCW Local 7 president, told BizWest. “There’s interest from workers all over this country to join a union. They’re looking for any path they can find to fight for better wages, better working conditions.”
