One by one, 14 union supporters at the E-Z Pass administrative center in New York got a call from their boss on Monday asking them to "come into my office." Then, one by one, all union supporters were told that their services were no longer needed. One union activist, Frank Buonvicino, was told that "we know you were one of the union leaders," as he was let go. On the Friday before they were fired, all these workers had sent a message by standing up for 60 seconds while continuing to work.
TheE-Z Pass administrative center is operated byXerox. Xerox is refusing to bargain a contract with these newly-organized CWA members, even though they won an election in May of 2009.
"I gave 150% to this company for five years," said Frank Buonvicino. "I am asking my union brothers and sisters to help us get our jobs back."
Help Frank and the other E-Z Pass workers get their jobs back. Take action right now: Tell Xerox CEO Ursula Burns that firing union supporters and refusing to bargain is outrageous.
