So is Harvest Market busting unions and firing workers?
10 Apr 2005
I have heard from a third party that Harvest Co-op recently fired the majority of it's staff, (possibly due to talk of organizing?).

Is this true? I wouldn't doubt it and if it's true let's teach those fucking yuppies that union busting equals business busting.

Local IMC, if you hide this message again, why don't you post to the IMC why you are doing this? I would give you my email but that would be pretty stupid if the bosses were watching huh?

Try to understand when being anonymous is being logical. Be indpendant not idiotic.

peace

uh, so in the future if someone hypothetically wants to communicate something like this, there is no reason that person cannot, hypothetically, set up an anonymous e-mail account and post information to boston-dispatch (at) lists.indymedia.org
or some such thing. right.

I wouldn't be surpized. Harvest totally doesn't have its shit together. The work environment blows. When some of the workers attempted to unionized they were fired for minor infractions. Also, I've heard they will tear down union organizing information on the wall there with all the messages in Cambridge. Pretty shity.

I hope that they don't allow unions to form. Their prices are too high to begin with. I can't imagine how high their prices would be would be if they had to bow down to union thugs.

yeah seriously, what the hell. if their prices are high and you shop there, then you can afford it. but if they are unionizing for higher wages, then they clearly don't feel they have enough! why don't you advocate that the owners take in less profit instead of jacking prices? where the fuck are your priorities?
