Teamsters Local 2-13 will be rallying outside the Richmond IKEA today at 2pm and they’re asking shoppers not to cross their picket line.
For those planning on spending their Saturday looking for an algot or snoig in the aisles of IKEA – Teamsters Local 2-13 is hoping you don’t.
The Richmond workers have been locked out for a year and Union Rep Anita Dawson is asking for the public’s support.
“It’s not just about not shopping at IKEA Richmond it’s about not shopping at any IKEA until this dispute is resolved. That’s the best way they can support us.”
Since the union turned down four offers last year, there have been no negotiations since.
Dawson says they won’t accept a concessionary offer from the furniture giant.
