Originally: FROM NATIONAL MOBILIZATION AGAINST SEWATSHOPS:
STOP THE LIES, THREATS & DISCRIMINATION AGAINST UNION WORKERS!
When? 6pm-8pm NEW YEAR'S EVE, FRIDAY DEC. 31
Where? GOLDEN BRIDGE RESTAURANT 50 Bowery (Just below the corner of Canal)
Gather at 5:30pm at the Chinese Staff & Workers' Association, 55-59
Catherine St.(btwn Canal & Hester St), 2nd Floor, Room 201
Why?
*Phillip Wu, the owner of Golden Bridge Restaurant and the Dynasty
Supermarket, Inc, made slanderous statements and threats against members of
the 318 Restaurant Workers’ Union.

*Mr. Wu spread the word around that management “bought off” the 318
Restaurant Workers’ Union and its members.

*At a September 24, 2004 press conference, Phillip Wu, through his
spokesperson discriminated against 318 union members and stated that the
union workers applying for jobs at Golden Bridge are an “evil group of
people.” Later, Phillip Wu and his company further
elaborated that 318 was an illegal organization.

*Phillip Wu’s representatives used video cameras to record 318 workers who
were applying for jobs, and then publicly threatened the workers’ union
representative, by saying “watch your back, you c**t!”

*On another occasion, two thugs followed a female 318 member on her way home
with a video camera, and asked threateningly “Are you going home now?
Where’s your home?”

We, the workers, will not take it anymore. We demand that Phillip Wu of
Golden Bridge Restaurant immediately stop discriminating and making threats
against union workers. We demand a public apology and compensation for
losses suffered by the workers. We will continue to picket Golden Bridge
Restaurant, and all Phillip Wu family supermarkets as long as Phillip Wu
refuses to apologize to us for the harm he has done.

The actions of the 318 Restaurant Workers’ Union is being supported by
workers of Jing Fong Restaurant, Harmony Palace Restaurant, 88 Palace
Restaurant, Ocean Palace Restaurant, Jade Plaza Restaurant and CLM
Restaurant.

BOYCOTT GOLDEN BRIDGE RESTAURANT!!
