What is Brandworkers Legal Defense-Plus?
Brandworkers Legal Defense-Plus connects you with the diverse resources you need to improve your retail or food job. And it's free!
Brandworkers Legal Defense-Plus will provide you with the legal information you need to assert your rights. Where appropriate, we will seek out lawyers from our Movement for Brand Justice network that are interested in taking your case. While legal action is a good starting point, it will take a lot more to win justice.
That's where the "Plus" comes in. Keep reading.
Focus on the Food Chain creates space for the immigrant workers of NYC's industrial food sector to build unity with each other, gain proficiency in the use of powerful social change tools, and carry out member-led workplace justice campaigns to win dignified working conditions.
