Alicia Yopihua, Romualdo Romero, Julio Romero, and Demecio Romero have worked cleaning the Lexus of Wayzata, Village Chevrolet, and Auto Bargain Center Lot for ROC Commerical Cleaning and subcontractors of ROC for the past 8 years. As of last week, they were earning less than they were making eight years ago.
On June 9, they participated in a one-day strike together with workers from 7 other companies for better wages and working conditions. That same day, the ROC cut the contract of their subcontractor and the workers were forced to turn in their keys. It is clear to the workers that they were fired for going on strike, and have filed an Unfair Labor Practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board. But how long will workers be out of a job before that charge is resolved?
The owners of the dealerships where these workers cleaned have a lot of power to decide who cleans their buildings. We are asking you to make a phone call to the dealerships, tell them that ROC's retaliation against workers is unacceptable and potentially illegal, and we are asking them to hold ROC responsible and give the workers their jobs back!
Please contribute to support this family's effort to stand up for workers rights and fighting against retaliation.
