Immigrant workers at Grand Café, a deli near Grand Central Station, have been organizing against wage theft and exploitative conditions at Grand Café since early 2013. The grassroots campaign is completely driven by workers, with the support of ROC-NY.

Workers describe a daily experience of low wages, missing tips, unsafe conditions, job insecurity, and having no benefits whatsoever. One worker called it “being treated like robots.”

Grand Café workers are fighting for basic respect on the job, but already four of them have been illegally fired for their organizing activities. This has only strengthened the workers’ resolve, but they won’t be rehired without concerted pressure from the community.

Join the workers and 99 Pickets for weekly actions at Grand Café, including leafleting and more. See the picket schedule for what’s happening this week.

   99 Pickets supports this campaign by publicizing their events; building connections between workers, organizers, and activists; and organizing our own actions in solidarity.
