Employees at a Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (NYSE: CMG) location in Langsing, Michigan voted 11 to 3 to form the company’s first union in the U.S.
The vote follows unionization efforts by Chipotle employees Augusta, Maine, who were the first at the company to petition for a union. That election was paused after the National Labor Relations board director ordered an investigation into the Newport Beach restaurant chain for an unfair labor practice charge, which alleged it illegally closed its Augusta location.
Chipotle, Orange County’s second largest restaurant chain by sales, counts over 100,000 employees across its more than 3,000 restaurants.
Following the vote, shares in Chipotle fell less than 2% to $1,632.49 apiece and a $45 billion market cap.
