In the fourth episode of A Better Table, Umeko Motoyoshi interviews Emily Haddad. Haddad is an acupuncture student, barista, and works as a key organizer in the Tartine Union. Tartine Bakery originally opened in 2002 in San Francisco's Mission District. In February of 2020, Tartine was operating five retail storefronts in the Bay Area, three in LA and four in Seoul, Korea. That same month, over 140 employees declared their intention to unionize to management. Earlier this year, Motoyoshi sat down with Emily Haddad and had a conversation about the efforts to unionize.
Season One of A Better Table is sponsored by Baratza, Oatly, and Urnex Brands.
