TOMORROW! URGENT ACTION!
Immigrant Workers Continue Their Fight for Justice

The workers have brought their demand for payment of $183,500 in
non-payment of wages and overtime to U.S. District Court in Massachusetts!

What: With the legal support of Greater Boston Legal Services a group of
Latino immigrant workers and members of Centro Presente have brought their
demand for payment of $183,500 in non-payment of wages and overtime to U.S.
District Court in Massachusetts. "We have been fighting this case for
nearly a year and now finally we've had enough and we're going to court to
get what we earned," stated Marcos Che Cucul one of the affected workers.

The workers were employed by Mumbai Chopstix located on Newbury Street in
Boston, Bukhara in Jamaica Plain, Diva Indian Bistro in Somerville's Davis
Square and Cafe of India in Cambridge. These restaurants are part of Amrik
S. Pabla's One World Cuisine restaurant group.  The workers first came to
Centro Presente almost a year ago with their case and have since been
managing their public campaign to get their rightfully earned wages through
negotiating with the owners.  In the process they learned about their labor
rights and educated the general public about immigrant labor exploitation.


*Where: Diva Indian Bistro, 246 Elm Street, Somerville, MA. *
*When: Tomorrow, Friday, November 2nd at 6:00 p.m.*
