8am-8pm daily picket of Hot & Crusty, 63rd St. & 2nd Ave.!

Workers and members of the OWS community are picketing daily the 63rd Street location of the Hot and Crusty Bakery, following its recent closure, alleging that the company has deliberately withheld rent payments, after a hard-fought and successful unionization drive in May 2012. The company, owned by private equity partner Mark Samson, gave the Hot and Crusty Workers Association 11 days notice of eviction from the property, informing employees that August 31st would be their last day. The union, led by grassroots labor organization Laundry Workers Center and a contingent from Occupy Wall Street, students, faith and community members are holding a daily 8am-8pm picket demanding the company discontinue its union-busting tactics, pay its rent immediately, and continue to negotiate a fair contract with its workers. The company has used several bait-and-switch tactics during negotiations, threatening workers’ immigration status to deter their commitment to continuing the fight.
