Union Power, Corporate Greed

Updated 10/12/17: Here is an open letter to the president of the Culinary Institute of America opposing his decision to fire 17 union workers and replace them with low-wage, no-future contract laborers.

We joined workers in Hyde Park yesterday to speak out against another act of corporate greed — the Culinary Institute of America is firing 17 committed union workers and replacing them with low-wage, no-future contract labor. Why? It’s a renown school that enjoys not-for-profit status and dispenses millions in executive compensation. This is about greed and shattered lives. We must confront corporate greed with people power.
