Palermo's Pizza Workers March to Demand Meeting with Owners

June 3, 2013

Last week, 150 members of the Palermo Workers Union and their allies marched 18 miles from the Palermo's Pizza plant in Milwaukee, Wis., to the Mequon, Wis., home of Palermo’s co-owner Angelo Fallucca to demand that he and his brother and co-owner, Giacomo, meet with them in their ongoing dispute over workers’ rights. A year ago, the Falluccas fired nearly 100 workers who were organizing to improve working conditions at the Palermo’s factory. More than 50 groups co-sponsored the March for a Slice of Justice.
