Press statement from Laundry Workers Center

On Tuesday Feb. 23—the same day as the powerful union win by B&H Photo’s Manhattan warehouse workers—the company illegally fired an entire department of cleaning staff.

These 7 workers had requested meetings with B&H Photo human resources, demanding respect and an end to hostile treatment and scare tactics. They expressed their interest in the benefits of a union but were not a part of the group that petitioned for and won the Feb. 23 election.

It is illegal and wrong for B&H Photo to retaliate against these workers. Collective action is protected by U.S. law.

We stand united with hundreds of B&H warehouse workers, the Photo/Video Alliance, the United Steelworkers, and the New York labor community, demanding that B&H Photo Video immediately rehire the #BH7.
