UNITE wins Brylane workers

Indianapolis — Following a 15-month campaign by UNITE (the Union of Needletrades, Industrial and Textiles Employees), the 800 employees of the Brylane Distribution Center here have approved union representation.

"This is a great victory for Brylane workers because it reaffirms their right to choose union representation without employer interference," said Bruce Raynor, president, UNITE. Brylane did not respond to calls seeking comment. Workers began organizing in 2001 to address health and safety concerns, the union said.
