Members of the Kensington community and New York Communities for Change in a protest for fair wages and a union contract at the Golden Farm supermarket on July 24, 2012, as part of the National Day of Action for low-wage workers. Golden Farm owner Sonny Kim had for years paid his workers sub-minimum wages, and has been blocking the workers efforts to unionize and collect back wages that they have been owed. Members of the Kensington community, including the recently formed Occupy Kensington, have been supporting the workers.

Care One and HealthBridge workers from Connecticut and New Jersey converge on the Straus companies’ headquarters in Ft. Lee, NJ, delivering thousands of petitions that folks gathered during the first month of the strike/lockout there.

Workers will never back down from their opposition to surface bargaining, incredibly regressive contract proposals, and plain-old union-busting!
