Lululemon Workers Look to Unionize D.C. Store, the First Location to Do So

July 22, 2022

A Lululemon store in Washington, D.C. has started the process of organizing a union, and has filed a request with the National Labor Relations Board to hold a union election. The group is looking for the company to voluntarily recognize their union, which is called the “Association of Concerted Educators,” likely a nod to the word used to describe retail employees at the chain.

This store becomes the first Lululemon location to embark on the unionization process — and the latest retail store to initiate a move. The group said it was demanding more collaboration, transparency and equitable pay structures. FN
