225 Jewish Leaders Stand with Workers at B&H

On Tuesday, June 14th, 225 Jewish leaders released a letter calling on B&H Photo and Video to sign a good contract with the union on behalf of the workers and end retaliation for organizing. The Laundry Workers Center (LWC) and Jews for Racial & Economic Justice (JFREJ) stood with workers and community supporters to deliver the letter to B&H management. Community supporters believe that firings and ongoing retaliation by B&H management are in violation of the right of workers to organize under the National Labor Relations Act.

Tuesday, we gathered for a press conference with workers, rabbis, immigrant-led groups, and labor organizations. We are asking you to tweet-out today not only to support of the B&H workers, but to share in the strength of fighting back by fighting together.   
Workers Rufino, Ricardo, and Maurilio stand strong against retaliation, holding a banner that unites the Hebrew and Spanish words for justice, “tzedek/justicia”.
Fight Together, Tweet Together!
