2 weeks ago, painting workers at Bradley Coatings, Inc, organized and decided not to go into work as part of the nationwide action “A Day without Immigrants.” 18 of them were fired after standing up and taking action.
Now, the workers are demanding justice, in the form of compensation for being unfairly fired.
They have a message for the company: that they should treat all employees fairly, without discrimination based on race, gender, religion, etc. They also are demanding that Bradley Coatings not retaliate against other workers in the future.
This action comes on the heels of another demonstration last week, also in front of Bradley Coatings, which was organized by the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT). The momentum is building!
