Seasons Throws in the Towel at NEA(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)Seasons Culinary is leaving NEA and its workers there are not sad to see it go. “We will now work on a transition to a union company with union standards,” said Emilio Abate, president of UNITE HERE Local 23, which represents the workers. Seasons, targeted by Local 23 for months over its refusal to accept a contract that would give its workers the same benefits and protections as at other DC UNITE HERE Local 23 cafeterias (UNITE HERE 23 Urges NEA Head to Support Cafeteria Workers 5/7 UC), has informed the NEA “that it does not wish to renew its current contract with NEA when that contract expires on August 31st of this year,” NEA Executive Director John Stocks told staff in an email on May 28. photo: April 24 rally against Seasons at NEA; photo by Chris Garlock
