Grand Cafe Solidarity Call-in on Friday, Oct. 18



Since immigrant workers at Grand Café, a deli near Grand Central Station, began organizing against wage theft, intimidation and abuse in the workplace, four workers have been illegally fired in retaliation.

Save the Date!
This Friday 10/18, we’re flooding Grand Café management with calls demanding an end to retaliation.

Call (212) 883-6789, and ask for Mido (the manager). Tell him to rehire the illegally fired workers, and negotiate a fair agreement with Grand Cafe workers. Try to call around 9am or 12pm, but call whenever you are able to.

Together, we will fight for the workers to be rehired and for an agreement that forces the owner of Grand Café to provide a fair and just workplace, where employees are treated with respect.

Join with Grand Café workers and 99 Pickets members, and help us step up the pressure on Grand Café management. Support this grassroots, worker-driven campaign, with training and support from Restaurant Opportunities Center of New York (ROC-NY).
