Protest Against Wage Theft at Arby's

When: Wednesday, February 08 2017 @ 05:00 PM - - 07:00PM
Where: Arby's Restaurant
601 South Bernardo Avenue
Sunnyvale, CA 94087
Description: Please join us for a protest rally against Arby's at 501 S. Bernardo Avenue in Sunnyvale on Wednesday, February 8 at 5:00 p.m.

Arby's has not only failed to pay a state court wage theft judgment (attached), but it has also received a recent federal court judgment for wage theft (failure to pay wages and provide uninterrupted meal breaks), sexual harassment, sexual battery, wrongful termination, and retaliation.  (attached).  Finally, the National Labor Relations Board has found that Arby's has committed multiple unfair labor practices involving a number of workers.  Laura Lopez and Miriam Andrade, the two workers with judgments, will present a letter to Arby's requesting that it satisfy both judgments.  We need you to support the protest rally by attending and mobilizing your members.  We need to show Arby's that it can't ignore judgments and that there are consequences for wage theft and abuse of workers. 

Our  legislative goal is to enact a Wage Theft Policy and Ordinance in Sunnyvale and other North County cities that is similar to the wage theft policy and ordinance enacted in San Jose.  We hope to shine a spotlight on Arby's and highlight the high incidence of wage theft in this area.

Please let us know if you can attend and how many people you can bring.   We need your support.
