Victory is theirs. With extra cheese.
More than two dozen deliverymen who were fired from a Washington Heights Dominos over the weekend — after participating in a rally for higher pay — got their jobs back Thursday, thanks to N.Y. Attorney-General Eric Schneiderman.
“New York’s labor laws exist to ensure the protection and fair treatment of employees in the workplace,” Schneiderman said in a statement, adding the owner could be fined if the workers were not reinstated. “My office will take swift action where there is any indication that an employer may have retaliated against workers for complaining about illegal labor conditions.”
The head of the pizza factory on W. 181st St. near Broadway agreed to restore all 25 workers by Sunday, said Schneiderman.
The agreement did not resolve an ongoing investigation, launched by Schneiderman’s office in October, into other possible state and federal labor violations at the Washington Heights Dominos and others owned by the franchisee, Robert Cookston.
