Target has joined the growing list of major companies where employees are trying to form a union.
Employees at a Virginia store filed on Tuesday with the National Labor Relations Board for a union election. The workers are seeking collective bargaining and get representation through the New River Valley General Membership Branch of the Industrial Workers of the World.
Workers who filed for the election are at a Target store in Christiansburg, a town on the far west side of the state that’s about 8 miles south of Virginia Tech University. The location has 100 employees, according to the petition filed with the NLRB.
