Current Councilwoman Kim Roney is running for Mayor of Asheville. Kim is a great union supporter. She posted the paragraph below on her Facebook page "Kim Roney For Asheville".
Workers at Starbucks on Charlotte Street have filed to organize a union with SBWorkersUnited! Support is currently requested to order under the name “Union, yes!” I brought my reusable mug and a cash tip—not being able to receive credit card tips is a issue according to the workers I spoke with.
Workers organize unions for wages, benefits, and safe working conditions. It’s so important to show up in solidarity with unions, especially because NC is a right to work state, which makes retaliation harder to fight in the struggle for people over profits.
