Put an End to Jimmy John's Retaliation: Picket and call-in to support fired IWW organizer!

Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 13:23

Picket: Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015 at 11:45 AM
Jimmy John's, 401 W Pratt St, Baltimore, Maryland
RSVP on Facebook!

Nothing scares the bosses more than workers standing up for dignity and a better life on the job. From day one the bosses have conducted a campaign of retaliation against union members at the shop.

On Friday, January 23rd, Jimmy Johns fired one of the IWW organizers in the shop.

We need your help to show the bosses that such action against our members is unacceptable! Join the picket line with us and let your voice be heard! We won't let management silence our voices and attack our members.

Our picket will take place during Orioles FanFest, and you can help us hit the boss where it hurts the most: his wallet!
