Yes – A union and its supporters first held a brief picket in front of our Santa Rosa facility in February, publicizing various complaints. Then on two occasions, much larger groups of employees held their own rallies in support of the company to counter things said by the union. (Amy’s had no role in orchestrating or coordinating any of these employee efforts.)
Our employees continue to speak out on their own in support of the company through letters-to-the-editor, social media comments and other forums, and we respect all employees’ voices. While we are always learning and take all opportunities to improve seriously, we appreciate the confidence we’ve earned with so many employees over the years as we work to maintain our family culture, our values and our commitments to each other.
