|Fired Nebraska IWW Baker Demands Reinstatement with Back Pay
On December 18th, 2010, members of the Industrial Workers of the World
(IWW) and community supporters walked into the Open Harvest Natural Foods Cooperative Grocery’and presented management with a petition signed by supporters
and a letter demanding that IWW baker Andrew Losh be reinstated with
back wages for time missed.
“I love working at Open Harvest and I support their goals of providing
the community with sustainable and organic food,” Andrew Losh stated.
“I get along with my coworkers and enjoy interacting with all the
great customers that shop there on a regular basis,” he continued.
“But it seems as if the relationships between the management and the
employees have gone downhill lately.”
Losh was fired by his manager, Nancy Sauer, on December 3rd for not
maintaining an unspecified work pace. According to Losh, Sauer has a
history of treating employees unfairly.
