Hundreds of cafeteria and other food-service workers rallied in Lower Manhattan on Wednesday afternoon for higher wages and improved benefits as part of an ongoing battle between the Aramark Corporation and the union Unite Here, which represents about 20,000 Aramark employees, including about 4,000 in the New York region.
The workers rallied outside the headquarters of Bank of New York Mellon at One Wall Street before traveling to the Goldman Sachs headquarters headquarters at 85 Broad Street and then returning. Some changed slogans like, "Who's in the kitchen? We don't know. Aramark has got to go."
