B&H’s worker treatment is WAY out of focus. As you may have heard, worker leaders Rufino Martinez, Ricardo Ramirez, and Maurilio Basurto Ortega have been fired, and management continues to use fear tactics inside the warehouses. The company has donned 2 faces, claiming to bargain in good faith with the union, while oppressing workers’ rights on the job. To add insult, B&H Photo Video has been promoting in-store sweepstakes, encouraging customers to take a selfie at the store and tag #bhsuperstore for a chance to win B&H gift cards.
Forget the selfies. Let’s show B&H what REAL community support looks like with our very own #BHExposed FIGHT BACK “Sweepstakes!”
Here are the ways to FIGHT BACK for #BHExposed:
Share this image of community members supporting the workers at B&H. LES residents and social justice warriors joined LWC at the Loisaida Festival last Sunday to get their #BHExposed photo taken. Help LWC share their powerful message. Please POST and SHARE this image on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with the hashtags #BHExposed and #BHSuperStore, and the @bhphotovideo handle.
Flyer today, June 7th, at 5pm and Friday, June 10th, at 12pm. Meet us outside B&H Photo on 34th St and 9th Ave.
Flood Twitter on Thursday, 6/9 to call out B&H for their retaliation and firings. Keep an eye on your Inbox for sample Tweets!
Join JFREJ, LWC, and Jewish leaders for a special press conference outside B&H (34th St and 9th Ave) on Tuesday, 6/14 at 9:30am. Save the date and keep an eye out for the Facebook event, coming Thursday
Call B&H on Wednesday, 6/15 to demand an end to intimidation and discrimination. Keep an eye on that Inbox for the Call to Action!

How will you FIGHT BACK? The truth is, there are no “sweepstakes” for #BHExposed. The stakes for the B&H workers are so much higher than gift cards and selfies. When you share, tweet, call, or flyer, you bring us a little closer to getting the fired workers rehired. You bring the workplace a little closer to being safer. You bring the campaign a little closer to victory.
