Organizers from the Workers Center at Economic Justice Coalition Successful in Mediation
Last fall, The Workers Center was contacted by a group of Latinx construction workers in Atlanta who had completed work on a large development project, but had been unable to secure their earnings from the subcontractor. After repeated attempts on the workers’ parts, the Workers Center at EJC offered guidance and training to the workers on best practices to get the wages they had rightfully earned.
In February, a delegation of labor organizers from the Workers Center at EJC descended on the developer’s offices in Atlanta for a meeting with their executive team, in an attempt to mediate the dispute. The organizers & the worker came with photographic evidence supporting their claim and letters of support from local elected officials and pushed for a resolution.
