Seattle REI Workers and Councilmember Kshama Sawant gather at the Seattle REI Flagship store to celebrate a big win for workers fighting for secure scheduling, strong wages, and cost of living adjustments. After months of organizing, and speaking courageously at the town hall hosted by Councilmember Sawant on July 11, REI workers have just won a huge victory. On Sunday, REI announced a new plan to provide raises and forthcoming details on proper working hours for employees at the Pacific Northwest-based retail co-op.

 
At tomorrow's gathering, REI workers will share the next steps for this successful workers' rights campaign, how they won this wage increase, and how they will build on these victories to ensure that workers can escape poverty. Sawant and REI workers will be joined by Katie Garrow, Deputy Executive Director of the Martin Luther King Jr. King County Labor Council and workers from UFCW Local 21.
