HelloFresh workers in Aurora overwhelmingly say “no” to union

Workers at the HelloFresh factory in Aurora voted 166-91 against forming a union to represent the employees who put together home-delivered meal kits.

The National Labor Relations Board counted the votes Monday. Mail-in voting by the roughly 350 eligible employees began Oct. 28.

About 900 employees at a HelloFresh workplace in Richmond, Calif., started voting Nov. 18 on whether to form a union.

The employees who organized the Aurora vote said they wanted to form a union to seek better pay and working conditions at HelloFresh, the country’s largest provider of home-delivered meal kits. An accident in June that occurred when a pallet with bins fell from a high rack on four employees, seriously injuring one, further galvanized the union backers.

The employees and organizers with Unite Here, a union that represents workers in the food service and other industries, had hoped to capitalize on the momentum of strikes and wage gains by people who have kept going to work every day during the pandemic.

Janitors at Denver International Airport who are members of the Service Employees International Union Local 105 won a $4 hourly raise after walking off the job Saturday, just as Thanksgiving holiday travel was getting underway.
