Ben & Jerry’s workers attempt to form a union

Workers at a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream shop in Burlington, Vermont, are unionizing.

40 workers at the store, known as “Scoopers United”, cited unsafe work conditions as being the main reason why they want to form a union.
On Friday, the company agreed to the workers’ proposed fair election principles, making it easier for employees to gain union representation.
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who is a big supporter of unions, spoke at a rally this weekend.

More steps need to be taken before Scoopers United can officially be recognized as a union.

But a store manager hopes that can happen sometime next week.
