B&H workers protest
Workers and supporters trying to win a union and a contract with the quarter-billion-dollar retailer B&H rallied at Ninth Avenue and 34th Street in Manhattan on Oct. 18. The action followed a similar one a week earlier in which B&H warehouse workers, organized by the Laundry Workers Center, kicked off a drive to become members of the Steelworkers union. The workers at the B&H warehouse in Brooklyn list unsafe and unhealthful working conditions as among their major grievances. Their organizing drive led to a confrontation at the warehouse in the week before this latest demonstration. For more information, see lwcu.org.
