Dunn Street founder and Community Organiser Stephen Donnelly was joined by Assistant to the President at the Retail, Wholesale Department Store Union (RWDSU), Jessica Garcia.
In a follow up to last year’s episode with Lawrence Ben on the union’s campaign to unionise an Amazon warehouse in Alabama, Jessica fills us in on the progress the union has made in its campaign to help Amazon workers unionise.
Jessica also discusses the union’s work with NY agricultural workers, cannabis workers in the new and thriving industry, and the growing movement of American workers voting to unionise and what this trend tells us about the perception of unions in American society.
