NYC demo, 1/28/16: Hot and Crusty Workers Under Attack
Stop Union Busting at Brod Kitchen
Thu, Jan 28, 2016, 05:00 pm to 07:00 pm
The owners of Bröd Kitchen (formerly Hot & Crusty) on Manhattan’s Upper East Side announced a sudden and immediate shut down of the unionized bakery/restaurant. This attempt to throw the nineteen workers out of work is a clear attempt at union-busting. Join us to speak out against these greedy and callous owners who try to boost profits by destroying the rights and livelihood of workers and their families.

Twitter Storm! The Hot & Crusty union workers need your support!
On January 14th, 2016, in an attempt to disband and bust the unionized workers of Brod Kitchen-- formerly Hot & Crusty Bakery--on 63rd Street and 2nd avenue, the owners suddenly announced that they would shut down the unionized bakery/restaurant permanently, THE FOLLOWING DAY. This highly politicized move was made the day before Union negotiations for the worker’s second contract began.
The Hot & Crusty Workers Association (HCWA) represents primarily immigrant and African American workers, and the owners’ actions can only be interpreted as being racist, classist and heartless. Brod Kitchen owners have opened a second location at 31st and 4th street in an attempt to have a non-unionized staff.
19 workers are out of a job within 30 days.
We need your help to stop this attack on workers’ rights here in New York City.
