NEW YORK, NY – Today, the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU), announced that the workers at Vosges Chocolate Store in Soho, New York City, voted unanimously to be represented by the RWDSU in their fight for a voice and fair treatment in the workplace, as well as job security and fair wages through a collective bargaining agreement.
“Spend one minute with a new member at Vosges Chocolates and you’ll hear first hand that a day in luxury retail is no better for workers than at a discount retailor – and that’s critically significant in this union-yes vote today,” said Stuart Appelbaum, President, Retail, Wholesale & Department Store Union (RWDSU). “All workers deserve a strong union voice at the bargaining table and we are proud to be representing these hard working women at Vosges as we push to secure a fair contract.”
“I am proud to be among the newest members of the RWDSU,” said Roxy Monroe, Vosges Chocolate Sales Representative. “Our small but mighty team deserves to be heard by the company and I am confident that with the support of the union we will have a strong contract that protects us all.”
The unanimous vote by the Vosges workers was conducted on the evening of September 29, 2017.
