Join our Picket at Jimmy Johns Today!
Who: Union members and supporters
What: Informational picket with flyers demanding the re-instatement of our wrongfully terminated member.
Why: Matthew Bair was fired Friday July 8th for alleged costumer complaints. The facts are that Bair never was told of any complaints and always received praise and good tips from costumers. Bair was fired for being a member of the IWW.
When: Monday June 11, 12pm – 1pm
Where: Jimmy Johns – 648 Monroe Street #101
The Jimmy Johns Workers Union, open to employees at the company nationwide, is affiliated with the Industrial Workers of the the World labor union. Gaining prominence in recent years for organizing Starbucks workers, the IWW is a global union founded over a century ago for all working people.
