Book Culture Re-hires Employees

One of the flyers that was circulated.

After much media attention and a protest outside of its stores, Book Culture just sent out the following email, stating that it has re-hired the four managers who were fired last week and that “there is no longer a labor dispute.”

To Our Friends,

We have re-hired all four store managers who were terminated last week. There is no longer a labor dispute. Book Culture has now recognized the RWDSU as the union representing our employees.

We are respectful of the rights of our employees to unionize and of the views of our customers in the community and the university. As we have gotten to know the RWDSU this past week, we believe that we and the RWDSU are well aligned in urging all customers to shop at Book Culture to support your local independent bookstore and to support the unionized employees who depend on your patronage of the two stores.

Sincerely,
Chris, Annie & the Book Culture Team
