Pikesville, MD – Target team members at store #1541 are on strike over disrespect and abuse perpetrated by their Store Team Lead Kate Harley. Since STL Kate has taken over workers are now stressed out both on and off the job because of her conduct, creating a hostile work environment where team members face intimidation, spying, and false accusations by STL Kate.
“Kate has been destroying Target ever since she started here. I come to work everyday stressed and worried if I can pay my bills and maintain my life with this job.”-Pikesville Target team member Nikolas Mosby
Team members don’t feel they can trust the internal channels Target Corporation provides to hold someone in a position of power like STL Kate accountable for their actions. Team members know that STL Kate and District Manager Ryan are friends, this is a conflict of interest concerning her abuse and disrespect of rank and file team members. These team members have provided multiple testimonies (see below) on the work conditions under STL Kate, they are fed up with this treatment and demand she be fired from Target Corporation immediately!

“She is extremely retaliatory, and will go to any length to get her way. I absolutely do not trust her as a leader, and constantly feel that I am being targeted”
Target team members will remain on strike and are enacting a community boycott of Target Store #1541 effective immediately until their demands are met by Target Corporation. We are asking all team members and supporters across the country to show solidarity and call the Target Integrity Hotline to demand Target meet the demands of team members at store 1541!
Call 1-800-541-6838 or send an email to Integrity@Target.com. Target team members are making a huge sacrifice by going on strike, including losing their pay. This time of year is very difficult for team members financially as our hours are slashed, every shift we are scheduled is crucial to cover our costs of living.
