Picket & Boycott at Saigon Grill
Where: Saigon Grill, 620 Amsterdam Ave., New York
For years, the owners of Saigon Grill, Simon and Michelle Nget, failed to pay minimum wage and overtime to many of the delivery workers. In 2008, the U.S. District Court issued a judgment of $4.6 million for the workers. In 2010, the workers reached an agreement with the owners, who then sold their two restaurants to pay for the settlement.
A group of shareholders bought the Upper West Side restaurant and promised a payment of $1 million to the workers by October 2011. They have not yet made this payment.
There is currently a boycott of the restaurant. The workers are being supported by several local organizations and members of the community.
There is picketing at Saigon Grill Wednesday-Sunday, 12:30-2pm and 6:30-8:30pm. Supporters are particularly urged to come to the picket line on Friday evenings, but participation at any time is appreciated.
