The results of our NLRB election are in and we are thrilled to announce that WE ARE AN OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZED UNION! Though it’s not the path to recognition that we had envisioned, we were happy to work with Tattersall and agree on a process that worked for everyone involved. Thank you to everyone for your continued support these last few months. We appreciate your comments, dm’s, shares, and statements of solidarity. FOH and bottlers cannot wait to return to work once we are able (distillers have been doing a great job holding down the fort). We’ve said it before but we want to reiterate that we love Tattersall. We consider this win another opportunity for Tattersall to be a leader in the industry; to be a catalyst of growth and progress for other establishments in and around our community. . . . . . . . #tattersallunion#tattersalllocal17#unitehere#union#tattersalldistilling

Collective bargaining is in the mix for workers at Tattersall Distilling in Minneapolis after they voted in favor of joining together in a union. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RKBJ78ulJw

The Twin Cities hospitality union, UNITE HERE Local 17, announced the news on social media today. Tattersall employees are the first at any craft distillery in the U.S. to form a union, UNITE HERE said, and the first distillery workers to do so in Minnesota. https://twitter.com/UNITEHERE17/status/1296536631583727616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1296536631583727616%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fadvocate.stpaulunions.org%2F2020%2F08%2F20%2Ftattersall-workers-make-history-with-union-vote-raising-hopes-for-industry-wide-reform%2F

When Local 17 filed for an organizing election in June 26, the would-be union included 27 Tattersall employees. The bargaining unit will bring together bottlers, distillers, bartenders, servers, dishwashers and hosts at the distillery and cocktail room in Northeast.
