Labor Workers at a local cafe in Sunderland called Java Hut need
your support as they attempt to unionize with the IWW. The
owners of Java Hut, Sean and Darren Pierce, have already reacted
by threatening and then firing two union activists and have
threatened to fire all others who support a union. While the
workers were attempting to seek recognition of the union, the
employers aggressively escorted the union spokesperson out of
the meeting and then proceeded to isolate then threaten and
intimidate other workers. Some examples of statements Sean and
Darren Pierce have made in response to workers union activities
include: "this is America and nobody is going to fucking tell me
how to run my business" and "you can't have a union as part-time
employees, we would just fire you all anyway."

Java Hut workers have filed a union authorization petition with
the NLRB in addition to filing two Unfair Labor Practice charges
with more to follow. They are now asking for public support by
asking union supporters to contact the Java Hut owners and tell
them to stop their illegal and immoral union-busting activities and
respect their workers right to organize now. It would also help if
people contacted them and identified yourself as a customer and
told them that if they do not stop, they will no longer support their
business and will tell others to do the same.

Call, fax, email, mail, stop by the cafe: Sean and Darren Pierce,
