Community Rally to keep the pressure on Walgreens
to bring a grocery store back to Windsor Terrace.
Community Rally for a Supermarket
Wednesday, August 1, at 10 a.m.
At the closed Key Food -- 589 Prospect Avenue
Tuesday July 24 is a national day of action for worker's rights and a decent minimum wage. In New York there will be a demonstration in Union Square starting at 4pm.
At the end of the demonstration some of the protesters will travel by bus to locations across the city where workers are engaged in struggles for decent wages.
Golden Farm will be one of the locations. The workers there voted to join a union back in March but their votes have still not been certified because the owner, Sonny Kim, has used every legal delaying tactic known to man. Every allegation he has made has been found baseless by the judges but each time he appeals and stretches the case out longer.
Likewise his lawyers reached a tentative agreement with the workers suing for back wages two months ago but no paperwork has been done. While Sonny draws out the process one worker has died of cancer leaving his family penniless and others face substantial hardships.
Join us at Golden Farm at 7pm Tuesday to protest for a decent minimum wage, paid sick days, and union recognition for the Golden Farm workers.

Dear Neighbors,Felix, one of the long standing Golden Farm workers who played a leading role in the organizing drive there, died of cancer last Thursday.Felix was the major earner for his family. He went on working long after he became ill because he needed the money and left the search for medical care too late because he had no health coverage.His family in Mexico have had to turn to the Mexican consulate in New York to get his body flown home as they do not have the money to pay for it themselves.Mr. Kim's lawyers have reached a tentative agreement with the Golden Farm workers for a settlement on the back wages that they all, including Felix, are owed. A figure has been agreed on, but paperwork has not been finalized. The workers asked Mr Kim if he would provide an advance on Felix's portion, but he has refused. He has however let them put a collection tin for Felix's family at the checkouts.There is a service at the Ortiz Funeral Home on 52 St and 4th Ave, today (Tuesday) from 4-9.Two of Felix's brothers also work at Golden Farm, and all of the stock workers were close friends with him. I know that they all would greatly appreciate any support or condolences from the community at this time.Eleanor
