Brooklyn - B&H Workers Seek To Unionize Citing Lengthy Record Of Unfair Treatment
Brooklyn, NY - Citing a lengthy track record of negligence and unfair treatment of employees, reps for the United Steelworkers union filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board on Tuesday requesting that a vote be taken among B&H Photo Video workers to determine if they want the Steelworkers to represent them in their move to unionize.
NYTIMES.com (http://nyti.ms/1LbfwjX) reports that the petition is the latest step in a series of moves by B&H worker reps who claim that the Brooklyn institution’s largely Hispanic workforce has been exploited and discriminated against for quite some time.
On Sunday, 300 people assembled outside B&H’s Ninth Avenue and 34th Street store as Steelworker reps dropped off a letter addressed to B&H owner Herman Schreiber and CEO and president Sam Goldstein requesting that the Steelworkers be allowed to act as the “sole and exclusive bargaining representative of the employees.”
