Wild Oats goes bananas over union organizer

The Wild Oats natural food chain claims to be progressive, enlightened, worker- and environment-friendly. The truth is, Wild Oats is anti-union.
Unions are important to help preserve jobs, protect wages and secure safe working conditions. Yet all across the country unions are under attack.
 
                                    
 
 
Union organizer Tom Kappas was fired over a couple of bananas that he paid for honestly.
 
 (By Dimitris Katsaounis)
 
There was nothing wrong with Tom Kappas buying a couple of bananas. Wild Oats claimed a discount on the bruised fruit was a firing offense, but discounting spoiled fruit was a standard store practice. By firing Tom, Wild Oats was just enforcing their long-standing anti-union policy of shutting down any organizing drive.
