US accuses Whole Foods of banning ‘Black Lives’ masks


Amazon.com’s Whole Foods Market illegally banned employees from wearing “Black Lives Matter” masks and
punished workers who did, US labour board prosecutors alleged.
The grocery store chain maintained appearance rules at US locations to prohibit staff from displaying Black Lives Matter messages on their apparel, the National Labor Relations Board’s San Francisco regional director said. The filing also accuses the company of firing, sending home and otherwise punishing employees around the country during 2020 for wearing apparel such as BLM masks or pins.
“Our dress code policy is designed to ensure we are giving Team Members a workplace and customers a shopping experience focused entirely on excellent service and high-quality food,” Whole Foods said in a statement.
