NLRB Rules in Favor of Striking City Laundry Workers

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

The National Labor Relations Board has ruled in favor of about 100 city laundry workers who went on strike last November. The workers claimed their employer, Jung Sun Laundry Group, in Queens, delayed health benefits payments, and refused to allow them to return to work after the strike. The NLRB has ruled that the company must reinstate the workers and repay them for their losses.

Albert Arroyo, with the New York City Joint Board of Workers United, said it's a major victory for the workers. "Not having salaries for almost a year, not having health benefits for them and their families -- it's a big day for us," he said.

The union said those workers may be entitled to more than a million dollars in back pay. A lawyer for Jung Sun Laundry Group was not immediately available for comment. The company provides laundry services to hotels in the city.
