Orchard Park Vet Workers Fight Back Against Union Busting
Dozens of workers at the Orchard Park Veterinary Medical Center in Western New York, who recently voted to join CWA Local 1168, held a rally on August 24th after the employer fired several pro-union workers for unjust causes. The workers took this action to send a clear message to management that union busting is unacceptable and that they will not be intimidated or back down from organizing. Members from CWA Local 1122 and the Kaleida Health bargaining committee, composed of members from CWA Local 1168 and 1199SEIU, as well as members from Starbucks Workers United and other supporters also joined the rally in solidarity with the workers.
