Another win against Cycle Logistics!

Published on Nov 27, 2021 Tags: , ,
November 25th we won yet another case against Cycle Logistics in the Berlin labour court. The judge found in favour of our comrade for the lion's share of the case, i.e. the falsely claimed minus hours, and our member will be paid his rightfully earned wages. We didn't succeed in claiming the lesser part (holiday payments that were not granted), but all in all: it was two steps forward and one step back. Like a metaphor for organising at the workplace.

Wage theft is real and there’s only one cure: reach out to your colleagues and organise against bosses who think that stealing wages from the people that create their profits is a zero-risk endeavour!

If you ever feel you've been left to face your problems alone at work, contact us! The union is there to help you negotiate and we will do everything in our power to solve the issue. We will negotiate, we will picket and we will go public. And as a last resort, we will also go to court. Because sometimes that’s necessary to show companies that next time they think it's a good idea to not pay workers their wages, they need to be careful. If we win, they’ll have to pay not only the outstanding wages, but the court fees as well. Ignoring basic workers rights is not risk-free, not with us.

One last thing: join the union BEFORE the situation gets bad. It’s an act of solidarity towards us as an organisation and other workers who stand up against exploitation. The Workplace Group at Cycle Logistic did it, and so can you.
