Update on the NYC foodstuffs campaign: workers at Flaum attempt to return to work this morning.

November 25, 8am: Workers along with members of the NYC-GMB march to Flaum, a kosher food distributor in Brooklyn, after a Labor Board ruling which ordered the boss to reinstate the workers with back pay. Instead, the boss wrongfully demanded that the workers reauthorize their immigration status and denied them their right to return to work.

The workers had been illegally fired for engaging in a work stoppage over the right to form a labor union and payment in accordance with the law.
