YES! MOM’s Workers Join Teamsters Local 570, First in Maryland
Updated On: Aug 31, 2022

Aug. 28, 2022 | Concluding their months-long union organizing campaign, more than 75 workers employed at MOM's Organic Market in Baltimore's Hampden neighborhood voted overwhelmingly on Friday, August 26, for representation by Teamsters Local 570.

The workers, full and part-time generalists, coffee roast, grocery, wellness, produce, naked lunch, and cashiers, launched their campaign to organize for fair wages and better working conditions earlier this summer when they reached out to Local 570. Among their issues are higher starting pay, regular raises, paid time off, holiday pay, job security, and dignity and respect on the job.

Sean Cedenio, Local 570 Secretary-Treasurer, said in a statement that the Teamsters “are committed to gaining the necessary items that these essential workers need for the services they supply.”

“For the first time, these workers will have a voice on the job,” said Moe Jackson, Local 570 Vice President, after the election.

“It was truly an honor to do this with my coworkers. I’m so glad that we get to secure a dignified workplace for now and future MOM’s workers,” said Kelsey Oppenheimer, a generalist and organizing committee member.
