Put an End to Jimmy John's Retaliation: Picket and call-in to support fired IWW organizer!

Picket: Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015 at 11:45 AM
Jimmy John's, 401 W Pratt St, Baltimore, Maryland
RSVP on Facebook!

Nothing scares the bosses more than workers standing up for dignity and a better life on the job. From day one the bosses have conducted a campaign of retaliation against union members at the shop.

On Friday, January 23rd, Jimmy Johns fired one of the IWW organizers in the shop.

We need your help to show the bosses that such action against our members is unacceptable! Join the picket line with us and let your voice be heard! We won't let management silence our voices and attack our members.

Our picket will take place during Orioles FanFest, and you can help us hit the boss where it hurts the most: his wallet!

We demand that Jimmy Johns rehire our fired fellow worker, and also demand that Jimmy Johns put an end to their retaliation against union members.

We'll see you on the line, and don't forget to bring a friend!

If you do not live near Baltimore or cannot make it to this action, call Jimmy John's on Saturday and demand that they immediately rehire Brennan Lester and stop all retaliation against union members and supporters:

Mike Gillett (franchise owner): 410-404-5684
Daniel Dolch (franchise owner): 443-797-2472

Be firm and insistent but please avoid any profanity or threatening language. (We don't want to give the boss any ammunition against us!)

Thank you for your support!
