Congratulations Colectivo workers

Joint statement from members of the Milwaukee Common Council: Alderman Cavalier Johnson, Alderman Nik Kovac, Alderman Michael J. Murphy, Alderman José G. Pérez and Alderman Scott Spiker

By - Aug 25th, 2021 01:10 pm

We want to send our sincere congratulations to the workers of Colectivo Coffee who have successfully won their vote to form a union, making them the largest unionized café chain in the country.

We believe the owners of Colectivo will bargain in good faith, and that this will lead to higher wages, better benefits, and safe working conditions for all of Colectivo’s employees.

Our service-sector employees deserve proper representation and the best possible working conditions, and hopefully this can serve as inspiration and a model for those in our city, state and across the country.
