More restaurants could face union activity

Working Lunch: The podcast includes a discussion on potential help for the industry from Congress and the Administration and growing unionization efforts. Jack in the Box could be pulled into the fray.

Could another brand face union activity after Starbucks?

This week’s episode of Working Lunch, the podcast from Align Public Strategies, features a discussion on the labor market upheaval. More college educated workers are now in frontline jobs and are bringing with them their unionization ideologies. Joe Kefauver, managing partner with Align, and Franklin Coley, a partner with the firm, discuss the potential impacts of this.

They also discuss whether another brand, notably Jack in the Box, could be pulled into the unionization fray.

Kefauver and Coley also discuss potential remedies from Congress and the Biden Administration to help the restaurant industry. Operators converged on Washington D.C. to plead for legislative and regulatory relief in the aftermath of the pandemic.

They discuss those issues and also provide their legislative scorecard.
