US IKEA plant to unionize

I wrote earlier about how IKEA’s sole US factory was treating its workers really badly (see here, here, and here).

Thanks to reader Fu Dayi, I learn that the factory is going to unionize. What helped in the unionization efforts was the public shaming that IKEA received which was damaging its reputation as a good employer.

This should lead to better working conditions.
