Hey J,

Point / Counterpoint?

Yesterday UNFI CEO posted an open letter defending his unionized labor negotiating/scab hiring (I'll look for link). UNFI is underfire in a well organized media storm.

The strike was mentioned on the conference call . It appears to be a protracted issue at impass but I've been impressed at Spinner's answers.

Today in part 2 of an interview aired today on NRP Morning Edition, WFM CEO JM urges those companies working with unions to resolve differences quickly and to embrace the unions requests.

Labor relations in the natural food story may have deeper overlapping layers. If UNFI issue heats up to garner public support, sounds like Mackey will come down on the side of employees. Put one in the UNFI risk column.

Best,

K
