Fired Laundry Workers Accuse Liox Cleaners of ‘Union Busting’
The Liox Cleaners chain is facing a raft of opposition in the wake of alleged “union busting.”
Tuesday afternoon saw the first of two picketing actions outside the Allen Street location, just north of Delancey.
According to the distributed literature, “On February 19, the Liox laundry chain fired the immigrant woman workers of the Wash Supply Laundromat. The owners have closed the Upper West Side location and taken away the machines.”
The workers were reportedly attempting to organize a union, and allege that this was the impetus behind their termination.
The laundry workers and advocates will return to 123 Allen Street for another action this Saturday.
