Mar 19, 2021
Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, Congressman Mark Pocan (WI-02) released the following statement regarding Colectivo workers organizing to form a union.

“Supporting essential workers means supporting their right to organize to form a union, collectively bargain, and fight for better wages, benefits & protections in the workplace. Every worker deserves a union and no worker should fear retaliation from an employer for organizing. Workers are the backbones of businesses like Wisconsin’s Colectivo Coffee and CEOs should treat them with the respect and dignity they deserve. No one should be laid off for organizing, no one should be targeted for demanding better workplace protections, and no one should feel unsafe in their own workplace. I stand in strong support of every worker’s right to unionize—including the frontline workers at Colectivo Coffee.”
