Handyfat Workers Win $360,000 in Back Pay

Workers from Handyfat Trading founded IWW Industrial Union 460 in
December 2005. They were instrumental and active in organizing all the
other food service shops that have joined IU 460 since then (ten
shops). In addition, these workers along with the workers from EZ
Supply/Sunrise Plus achieved the first collective bargaining agreements
in this segment of the food industry.

In December 2006 and January 2007, all union members from both
Handyfat and EZ Supply were fired. After winning orders of
reinstatement and back wages at the NLRB, the workers now begin to win
the court battles for their stolen backwages.
