Target Workers to Vote on Union Representation

Workers at the Target store in Huntington Station will vote on union representation in September, Bloomberg BNA reported Friday.

The store would be the only unionized Target store in the United States if employees vote in favor of union representation, a Target spokesperson told Bloomberg.

The acting regional director of the National Labor Relations Board’s Brooklyn office set the election for Sept. 7 and 8.

Employees will vote on whether they want United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 1500 to act as their representative in collective bargaining. With 22,000 members, the local says it’s the largest grocery union in New York.

The store opened in October 2013 on the site of the former Huntington Town House after Lowe’s withdrew its plans to build on the lot. It occupies about 150,000 square feet.
