From Workers' Centers to Labor Unions: the Struggle at B&H Photo, a Model for Labor's Future?
In late 2015 and early 2016, the mostly immigrant workers at the B&H Photo Warehouses and Store in New York successfully unionized their workplaces. The Steelworkers' campaign for the Union election was largely powered by the organizers and supporters of the Laundry Workers' Center (LWC), which has been organizing low-wage immigrant workers for the last four years and has had major successes developing worker leaders and promoting workers' rights through their leadership institute. The Laundry Workers' Center and the United Steelworkers developed a collaboration which facilitated this success and the empowerment of more than 300 workers. This story has implications for the broader labor movement.
Speakers: Brad Manzolillo, Organizing Counsel for the United Steelworkers; Kristina Mazzocchi, Mirer, Mazzocchi, Schalet & Julien
