Lisa Fithian has been working for nonviolent social change since the mid 1970's. Over the years she has been a student, labor and community organizer on a broad range of issues. From environmental justice to student and worker rights, from peace and global justice to immigration and housing, Lisa continues to use a wide range of strategies and tactics and encouraged nonviolent direct action as one of the most effective strategies for change.
Ryan Gaughan, a ten year employee of New Seasons, was fired on February 6th, 2012, allegedly over taking an extra scoop of rice and tofu on his lunch break.
A more plausible reason for termination of his employment lies with the fact that Ryan has been a long time workplace organizer, working for safer conditions and equitible pay scales for employees.
As a result of this unfair desisicion by management, members or Portland's wider community showed up on Valentine's Day in mass to support Ryan and show their displeasure with "the friendliest store in town."
On March 10th, New Seasons Market Workers’ Voice is calling for another rally dubbed “The Rally to Restore Friendliness.” The message is directed toward store management and company officials who are currently being investigated by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) for firing a worker shortly after he and other coworkers presented to them a series of concerns regarding disciplinary practices, pay inequities, and the direction of the company.
