We are Lush workers from around the globe. We work in retail, manufacturing, and distribution. We came together after our own individual experiences organizing and fighting for better working conditions and fair treatment.
While we are from different parts of world, the similarities of our experiences with Lush are too much to ignore. We have bonded over what we see as the company’s resistance to act on criticisms, empty promises, anti-union tactics, and the gulf between their actions and their values when it comes to their own employees. GLU (Global Lush Union) is an expression of this bond. Together we are committed to holding Lush accountable for its actions and to advocate for the right of all Lush workers to organize without fear, without intimidation, and without coercion.
We are unionists. We believe in equality, democracy, and human rights. We believe that the right to organize is a Human Right, and the choice to exercise that right is up to workers without intimidation, coercion or interference from any employer.
We believe in the principles Lush stands for and we are committed to upholding them. We Believe that this will lead to a mores successful and more ethical company.
Our Mission: As the Global Lush Union, our goal is to shed light on how unions are a compliment to Lush’s values and to fight for the freedom of Lush workers around the world to organize unions without interference from their employers.
Unions are founded on the principles of democracy, equality, and human rights. We believe that these values are consistent with the core values of Lush Cosmetics. In fact, Lush North America mentions unions in their “Ethical Buying Guide.”
We believe that by trying to prevent successful efforts by its own employees to organize a union, Lush undermines its own ethical commitments. Lush is a billion dollar company worldwide. They are using their power – as an employer – to combat the voices of workers who wish to organize.
We believe in evaluating actions not words, and we believe that these union-busting tactics do not meet the ethical standards that Lushies, Lush Workers, and the movements they support have for Lush Cosmetics.
Together, we can lead fearlessly. Together, we can build the brightest, most inclusive future for Lush Cosmetics.
Lushies, Lush workers, managers, supervisors, charity pot partners - we want to hear from you. Help fight for the rights of workers to organize a union.
