Following a recent trend of service workers organizing at companies like Starbucks, Apple and Amazon, employees at a Trader Joe’s in Hadley, Mass., voted to unionize on Thursday. It is the only one of the company’s more than 500 stores with a formal union.
The vote was 45 to 31, according to the National Labor Relations Board, which oversaw the election.
“Since the moment we announced our campaign, a majority of the crew have enthusiastically supported our union, and despite the company’s best efforts to bust us, our majority has never wavered,” the union, known as Trader Joe’s United, said in a statement.
