Milwaukee, WI - On Tuesday, Voces de la Frontera (VDLF) reported that seven Palermo Pizza workers who were terminated more than a year ago for supporting a union and walked out in support of more than 100 striking workers got $106,000 in back pay. Four of the seven fired workers decided to return to work.
The back pay marks another victory for VDLF who helped the fired workers get their money for the unfair labor practices that was conducted at Palermo Inc. 
So far in the past year, Palermo Inc. has paid at least $63,000 for health and safety violations that included a three finger amputation in May 7, 2013. The recent three OSHA citations for violations totaled $13,500, which each violation totaled $4,500, according to VDLF.
