Palermo's Pizza was wronged by Voces de la Frontera and Rep. Jocasta Zamarripa. Badly. They leveled false accusations and waged a long campaign of slander and libal against the company.
And they were completely, utterly, totally rebuked by the National Labor Relations Board, a notoriously pro-union government body.
Now, writes Colin Roth at Media Trackers, those who outright lied about a respectable Milwaukee business must pay for their sins. A mea culpa would be nice, but I don't even expect that.
To borrow a phrase from Vicki McKenna: OWN IT.
The NLRB’s decision is profound because it dismisses the very crux of Voces campaign against Palermo’s. If Palermo’s is not at fault for the ICE audit and the termination of undocumented workers, the strike, picket lines, boycotts, and media attacks aimed at Palermo’s have all been based on lies. Which is why Rep. Zamarripa’s position becomes so interesting.
This is not Voces’ first crack at intimidation, boycotts, and attacking business. And Voces will continue to stir up trouble, advocating a radical pro-labor union ideology in the name of immigrants rights. But Rep. Zamarippa must answer to her constituents and to the business community in her district. And on Monday, Rep. Zamarripa issued a statement saying that she stood with Palermo’s workers but would “withhold further comment” until she could read the NLRB decision.
But why would Rep. Zamarripa “withhold further comment” now when just a month ago she was so willing to issue lengthy statements that lambasted Palermo’s and parroted Voces talking points?
Shame. Shame. Shame. Shame.
