About 25 past Rye Golf workers protested at Rye City hall Wednesday night to raise awareness on an in-process class action suit against the City to recover lost gratuities (and interest, etc.) totaling $4 million.
We heard from Brent Pelton of Pelton Graham, the firm pressing the lawsuit for the workers. He told MyRye.com "We had around 25 workers attend to raise awareness to the fact that after over three years, they still haven't been paid any of their misappropriated gratuities. The citizens with whom we spoke as well as numerous passing motorists expressed support, so much so that Mayor Sack even came out to speak with the workers, expressing a desire to resolve the issue. The workers similarly want to resolve this claim but are frustrated by the delay. This is an issue of justice and fairness and the RGC workers plan on continuing their protests until The City of Rye pays them their unpaid overtime and misappropriated gratuities."
