Whole Foods CEO John Mackey reignited an old feud with the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) with an Aug 11 op/ed denouncing Obama’s healthcare plan and denying every American’s right to healthcare. Mackey is a vehement opponent of unionization.
Last week, the UFCW and the Change to Win federation joined the widening boycott against Whole Foods to protest Mackey’s remarks. UFCW has launched a campaign called Mackey’s Gotta Go. Change to Win represents 6 million workers and its investment division controls a billion dollars in assets.
