Happening Today: Occupy March from Zuccotti Park to T-Mobile Store

Hundreds of Occupy Wall Street protestors and members of the Communications Workers of America will march from Zuccotti Park today at 12:30 pm to a nearby T-Mobile store to protest the cell phone carrier’s anti-worker and union-busting tactics.

For years, workers at T-Mobile, owned by the German telecom giant Deutsche Telekom, have struggled for the same workplace rights their colleagues in Germany already enjoy. But T-Mobile has waged a campaign of intimidation and fear to stop employees from exercising their basic rights.

CWA members and Occupy Wall Street demonstrators will march to T-Mobile in lower Manhattan and deliver a simple message: T-Mobile workers are the 99%. They won’t stand for any more workplace intimidation.

Who: Occupy Wall Street protestors and CWA members

When: Friday, November 4, 2011, at 12:30 PM
