After casting their votes to unionize, five local bookstore workers were fired from Book Culture, a bookstore that has two locations on the Upper-West side. Hearing the news, their fellow workers walked off the job in solidarity. Within a day, the store’s decision was reversed and those fired were given back their jobs. They are now recognized as a part of the Retail Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU). Congratulations! This victory demonstrates the power we have to change our lives and the lives of others through organizing.
