Donate to Food & Retail Workers United campaign at Chicago-Lake Liquors

Click here to donate.


On April 1st, 5 workers were fired at Chicago-Lake Liquors, Minnesota's highest volume liquor store, for asking for better wages. Two days prior, they presented a petition signed by co-workers to management asking for a $1 raise in the starting wage from $8 an hour to $9 an hour, an across the board $1 raise, and a raise in the starting wage from $10.50 an hour to $13.



The five fired workers, Joe Giwoyna, Davis Ritsema, Max Specktor, Arella Vargas, and Hallie Wallace went public as members of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and Food & Retail Workers United, an organizing committee of the IWW.


They have filed Unfair Labor Practices (ULPs) with the National Labor Relations Board and have been doing actions at Chicago Lake Liquors demanding they be rehired, that their wage demands be met, and that their bosses stop union busting.
