4,000 Corporate Cafeteria Workers Fight for Sick Days Lost During Sandy


November 25, 2012 5:40pm | By Joe Parziale, DNAinfo Reporter/Producer

FINANCIAL DISTRICT Over 4,000 corporate cafeteria workers are fighting to win back paid sick days their employers docked when they couldn't work because of Hurricane Sandy.

Public Advocate Bill DeBlasio rallied with food service union Unite Here Local 100 in the Finacial District Saturday, charging that employers stripped workers of sick days and vacation time even in cases where Sandy left workers' buildings closed or inaccessible because of stunted transportation.

"Sick days are one of the basic rights in our society," said DeBlasio. "These workers had to make choices during the storm they should never have had to, and it's not right."

DeBlasio said the workers, who are employed by corporate dining services like Sodexo and Aramark, didn't find out about having involuntary days off taken away until they got their moist recent pay stubs.
