Employees Call on KRM Supermarket to Reconsider Relationship With Flaum Appetizing Corp. Over Serious Labor Abuses
Who: Unlawfully fired employees of Brooklyn food processor and wholesaler, Flaum Appetizing Corp., joined by a spirited contingent of community supporters, labor union allies, and concerned citizens.
Why: Workers are set for a federal court trial in Brooklyn against prominent kosher food company Flaum Appetizing and its owner Moishe Grudhut for years of stolen overtime and retaliation against workers who asserted their rights. The KRM Kollel Supermarket is one of New York's largest sellers of Flaum products including hummus, pickles, herring, and middle eastern salads. The workers and their supporters are calling on KRM Kollel to demonstrate socially responsible leadership regarding the products that it sells to New York consumers. Flaum has already lost a National Labor Relations Board trial over its relentless campaign to stifle workers' rights and employees are confident they will prevail in federal court as well.
