QSR chain counters union pressure by calling for a vote

Little Big Burger wants employees of all its Oregon stores to decide right away if they want union representation, and labor forces aren’t happy about it.

Fight for $15 and its deep-pocketed backer pummeled the giant with accusations, damning research and celebrity endorsements.

Workers, backed by the ACLU and union groups, filed more complaints and said steps by the company to prevent harassment are not enough.

For the second time in a week, employees of a unit have voted to become part of an Industrial Workers of the World affiliate.

A fifth unit of Burgerville is currently voting on whether it, too, will be represented by an affiliate of the Industrial Workers of the World.

The group that organized three units of Burgerville last year are going after a second chain, setting a possible model for organizing the sector.

A bill introduced Wednesday with widespread support would also set

Employees of a third Burgerville unit will now be represented by the Industrial Workers of the World.

The union-backed group is inviting workers across a number of industries to bolster the pressure by joining what it's calling a three-day "coast-to-coast uprising."
