Nordstrom's Union Faces A Recall Vote


In Business This Week

NORDSTROM'S UNION FACES A RECALL VOTE

Nordstrom's fight against its union may be entering its final phase. On July 17 and 18, employees in five Seattle-area Nordstrom department stores will decide whether to decertify their union, Local 1001 of the United Food & Commercial Workers. That's the union that barraged Nordstrom with negative publicity and lawsuits last year. Its main charge: that the Seattle-based retailer was violating hourly wage laws by forcing employees to work unpaid overtime to attend company meetings, stock shelves, and provide extra services such as home delivery to customers.

Both sides are campaigning heavily. But Nordstrom, with greater access to employees, seems headed for a big win in the decertification vote.
