Dollar General Unionizing Campaign 

05

Solidarity Actions for non-local Organizing Campaign 

In support of: Workers in Barkhamsted, CT attempting to unionize under UFCW. 

 

Currently, none of the thousands of Dollar General retail stores are unionized, as the company is aggressively opposed to unions with a company philosophy of remaining “union free”. Yet a handful of workers at a Dollar General store in Barkhamsted, Connecticut, are pushing to change that, with a union election scheduled for 22 October to join the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW).
