During REI's 2024 Anniversary Sale

REI isn’t the progressive Co-op you think they are - they’re an anti-union employer that goes to great lengths to fight against a growing union movement.

As we approach REI's 2024 Anniversary Sale, we think it’s important for all REI shoppers to know just how much time, energy, and money REI devotes to union busting. REI workers have been organizing for a better future at the Co-op since 2022, but the company’s response to unionization has been callous, undemocratic, and out-of-line with their values as a progressive employer. 


Below, you’ll find everything you need to know about REI’s continued pattern of anti-union behavior. It’s an extensive list, as they’ve been union busting for years and illegally avoiding their obligation to negotiate a fair deal. 


Enough is enough. It’s time for REI to STOP union busting and come to the bargaining table. Add your name to our petition below to show your support for REI workers and call on Co-op leadership to stop fighting against our union movement. 


The more members and shoppers we have standing behind our demands for fair negotiations, the more power we have to hold REI to its values during this year’s Anniversary Sale. 


REI’s Union Busting Explained

REI Fires Manager for Not Union Busting Quickly Enough HuffPost Hero Image.jpeg

REI’s aggressive union busting recently reached a new low - we learned earlier this month that they fired a manager for failing to report union activity and “escalate the situation to the appropriate leaders in a timely manner.” 


This firing makes it clear that REI doesn’t respect workers’ freedom to decide whether union representation is right for them. Instead, they’re dragging managers into the conflict, forcing them to choose between ratting out pro-union workers and keeping their jobs.
