Demonstrators Will March To Home Of Palermo’s Co-Owner


An 18-mile protest march to the home of the co-owner of Palermo’s Pizza is scheduled for tomorrow.

Fired and striking workers at Palermo’s Pizza and their supporters are making the trek from the Palermo’s factory in Milwaukee to the Mequon home of Angelo Fallucca.

Organizer Brian Rothgary says the aim is to ask Falluca for a meeting to discuss an ongoing labor dispute at the plant.

“Going to someone’s home as part of a demonstration is a sensitive issue and I think the workers are very sensitive to that. They feel though that the company has left them no other option in order to seek some redress for their grievances.”

The Palermo’s workers have had some setbacks before the National Labor Relations Board as the workers try to form a union. But Rothgary says the marchers hope to convince Fallucca that talking with the employees is the moral thing to do.
