Carwash Workers' Strike Wins Fired Co-Worker His Job Back

June 3, 2013

Workers at the Jomar Car Wash in Flushing, Queens, went on strike Saturday after one of their co-workers, Guillermo Anzures, was fired after an altercation with the business owner, Jose Pires, The New York Times reported. In April, workers at the carwash voted to join the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU). Since then, the workers claim their hours have been cut in retaliation, although the owners of the carwash deny that claim and state that the reduced shifts were based on reduced business.
