Samson has refused to reinstate her out of fear of her continued organizing efforts and the power of the solidarity of workers at Hot and Crusty .
Samson, who heads private equity firm Praesidian Capital, has also refused to recognize the workers newly formed labor organization, the Hot and Crusty Workers Association, and has terminated negotiations until they stop their public campaign.
Today, OWS supporters and allies of LWC took back the offices of Praesidian Capital to demand the rights of workers be respected--or WE'LL BE BACK!
Goal of this Phone Banking: 500 phone calls by tomorrow afternoon.
The 1% crashed our economy, foreclosing on millions of homes,destroying jobs, and wrecking our city budget. Enough is Enough. Another City is Possible, but we need to build it.
As we approach May 1, we will be setting up 99 Picket Lines to expose, disrupt, and shut down the 1% who rule our city.The 99 pickets will be an effective way for people to plug into the morning activities on May Day. A few other pickets will happen in the coming weeks to build for the May 1st, but the focus of this project is May 1st.
Good question- We are off to a great start. Right now, Unions, Worker Centers, community groups, and affinity groups are selecting and bottom lining targets. We already have over 20 locations. We have an outreach plan to encourage many more organizations to participate.
If you would like to register a picket line and or have any questions or need support firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's make Mayday in NYC a day to remember!
