Glassell Park's Fresh & Easy store say they have an employee-majority in favor of joining the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW), and local workers took their message online about the desire to become a union shop.

Speaking directly to fellow employees as part of a "multi-faceted campaign" to unionize the Tesco-owned chain of supermarkets, the UFCW launched the website fixfreshandeasy.com along with a social media campaign aimed at organizing 155 Fresh & Easy Neighborhood stores in California, Nevada and Arizona.
