Unlawful Anti-Union Retaliation Continues In the Brooklyn Food Industry Warehous

 
At 5:00 AM Monday December 18, 2006 IWW members from Top City Produce, along with a delegation of IWW members marched on Top City Produce to demand justice. Workers at Top City refused to go to work until the boss agreed to obey the law and start paying minimum wage and overtime. That afternoon workers at top city went back to work after the boss agreed to start paying the legal wage and open dialogue to discuss owed back wages.

On Saturday February 3rd workers were all suspended from work. The bossed handed each workers a letter saying Top City Produce will close from February 3 rd until February 24th in order to restructure to be able to pay off debts. Another 6 workers are jobless in retaliation for organizing a union, enforcing minimum wage laws, and demanding respect.
