Join OUR Walmart–organized by current and former Walmart workers–in actions around the country on Black Friday as members break their hunger strike calling for $15/hour and full-time. NYC action is at 9am: http://on.fb.me/1Ihfx2g
Workers have been organizing at the famous Liberato restaurant in the Bronx for several months now. But the restaurant still refuses to pay even minimum wage to their workers, and they are harassing worker leaders by arbitrarily changing their duties and work schedules.
99 Pickets is calling a solidarity call-in campaign on Saturday 9/5 12-2pm, Sunday 9/6 12-2pm, Monday 9/7 12-2pm. More info here.
From Courthouse News Service:
“A grassroots immigrant-rights group barged into a Bronx restaurant and played ‘off-key’ trombones and clarinets to trumpet its false allegations that the restaurant owner stiffed minority employees on pay, the owner claims in court.”
[Español] May Day is fast approaching, which means its almost time for the 3rd Annual Immigrant Worker Justice Tour!
Join our march on International Workers Day as hundreds of us take to the streets of NYC to demand dignity, justice and respect for workers and immigrants everywhere. This years tour will be highlighting struggles throughout NYC, as well as those of our sisters and brothers across the US and around the world.
Meet up is 12:30PM at Washington Square Park (by the fountain), where we’ll head off to over a dozen targets throughout Lower Manhattan to demand an end to wage theft, exploitation, inhumane and unsafe working conditions, privatization, the deportation, detention and criminalization of immigrant communities, and attacks on people of color and the poor both here and abroad.
Since August 2013, 99 Pickets has hosted a monthly meeting for workers, organizers and activists across NYC, to share information about their campaigns and discuss important issues in worker organizing. We’ve had five meetings so far, and would love to get your feedback to improve the meetings.
On the second Thursday of every month, workers and organizers from campaigns around the city gather to learn what’s happening in NYC.
