Four workers fired for organizing at Grassroots Campaigns in New Orleans in retaliation for union work. Another had a car towed on the job with the company refusing to reimburse them. We're raising funds to provide relief.

Four workers organizing at Grassroots Campaigns (GCI) in New Orleans were fired for organizing a union. GCI specializes in fundraising for progressive nonprofits, but when it comes to their workers they fail to live up to their progressive image.

 

About a month ago GCI workers in New Orleans filed for a union election to be represented by the IWW. Just prior to the union filing and in the time since workers in the shop have faced severe backlash from management. Four organizers have been fired in the lead up to the union election. Another was using their car for work purposes when it was towed, only to find that the company refused to cover the costs.

 

These firings and other acts of retaliation have caused severe hardship for GCI workers. The IWW Group in New Orleans is raising funds to help the workers through this tough situation.

 

We firmly believe that an injury to one is an injury to all. When those on the frontlines of the union struggle face retaliation for their actions, we need to have their backs.
