Grand Rapids IWW Plans Protest Monday in Support of Fired Star Tickets Worker

By Jeff Smith, GRIID.org, March 31, 2013


The Grand Rapids branch of the IWW is organizing a protest for this Monday, April 1st in response to the recent firing of one of their members for organizing fellow workers at Star Tickets.


The protest Facebook event page states:

IWW Organizer Deirdre Cunningham has been fired from Star Tickets in Grand Rapids where she had been working/organizing for years. The termination comes on the heels of a successful union campaign, which won IWW union certification for all Star Tickets Workers. Deirdre was fired on the day the Union was certified in an attempt to scare the other workers away from their Union.
