In the first union representation election held within the Chipotle system, employees in a Lansing Michigan store agreed to unionize by an 11-3 vote through the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The Lansing effort was the first to go completely through to a formal vote, but not the first store to request a union election – that ‘honor’ belonged to a store in Augusta Maine. In response to their union petition however, Chipotle closed that particular store due to the labor shortage. In the wake of the successful effort unionizing the store in Lansing with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, we can expect to see more Chipotle stores, all of which are company owned and operated, petition the NLRB for union representation elections. We will continue to keep you advised on this critical issue.
