A lot of the heavy lifting in today’s labor movement is coming from an unexpected place: the warehouses and processing facilities that bridge the retail and wholesale markets.
New York, NY- A federal judge has awarded a group of immigrant workers over $950,000 in unpaid wages for work at a Queens-based beverage distributor. A group of Latino warehouse workers and truck drivers brought the class action lawsuit against Beverage Plus and its owners after years of disrespect and systematic violations of state and federal law, violations which the judge found were intentional. The workers are members of Focus on the Food Chain, a coalition promoting good jobs and a sustainable food system in New York City's growing food processing and distribution sector.
¿Ha estado empleado por una compañía conocida como Beverage Plus ubicada en 58-87 55th Street, Maspeth, New York 11378 como conductor (Driver) o ayudante (Helper) desde el primero de junio de 2004?
Si es así, usted puede ser elegible para unirse a un pleito para recuperar el pago de horas extras y salarios mínimos que no le pagó la compañía.
