Dishes Line Clog

6/05/2013

Restaurant workers at DISHES, an upscale midtown Manhattan deli, are standing up against wage theft and for safety and respect in the workplace.

99 Pickets and the Occupy Wall Street community are mobilizing in support of these courageous workers.

“Line clogging” is a fun, easy way to pressure a restaurant owner to negotiate with his employees.

Would you eat at a restaurant that STEALS from their workers and FIRES them for standing up for their rights?

Write a review on Yelp! and let “Dishes” know that their illegal retaliation will not be tolerated. Workers have a right to collective action in the workplace.

Be sure to mention it if you’re a former “Dishes” customer.

March on Optimum/Cablevision: Reinstate the 23 Illegally-Fired Workers!

The scene on January 31 as NY labor and community allies demand that Cablevision/Optimum reinstate the 23 technicians they illegally fired.

You shouldn’t be fired for standing up for your rights!

23 Brooklyn Cablevision/Optimum workers were illegally fired on January 30. Why? When they tried to speak with a Cablevision/Optimum vice president about the company’s lack of good faith bargaining, the vice president claimed they were striking — even though none of the workers had refused to work. In fact, some of the workers who had begun their routes were called back to the garage to be fired.

From Bangladesh to the Jersey shore, (sing it!) Solidarity Forever!!  

They have taken untold millions that they never toiled to earn,
But without our brain and muscle not a single wheel can turn.
We can break their haughty power, gain our freedom when we learn
that the union makes us strong.
