REI SoHo Employee Union Takes Issue With New REI Legal Team, Pay Changes

June 2, 2023

The union representing employees at REI’s SoHo store in New York City said this week that REI had notified the Union, Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union (RWDSU), through its new legal counsel that many workers at the SoHo, New York store would be receiving pay cuts in their next paycheck amid a shakeup of the company’s legal representation at the bargaining table. The change would revert pay for many ReI employees to pre “The Way Forward” levels, which were reportedly won by workers late last year. SGB Media
