New York, NY – On this episode of LaborPress’ Blue Collar Buzz we’re revisiting the workers at CVS on Flatbush Avenue and their ongoing fight to become the first unionized shop on the East Coast to secure a fairly bargained contract from the giant pharmaceutical chain. Despite successfully organizing nearly three years ago, CVS continues to drag its feet. Local 338’s Mike Pasquaretta and Yomaira Franqui fill us in on the latest. Also joining us in the studio are labor historian Jane LaTour and labor rights and anti-REBNY activist Ray Rogers who discuss the ongoing closures of small businesses throughout the city, as well as the more than 450-day old strike against Cable-TV behemoth Charter/Spectrum.
