  • UWM Leftist Protest and Occupy Another Palermo’s Pizza Stand

    Palermo's Logo By Ethan Hollenberger

    For months, students around Wisconsin have been protesting frozen pizza company Palermo's Pizza Villa. Students at the UW-Madison and UW-Milwaukee have occupied offices of administrators in an attempt to get Palermo's Pizza pulled from campus. In March, YAF reported Marquette University students protesting Palermo's at a home men's basketball game. The protests reached a tipping point when the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee closed a pizza stand over-run by radicals.

    The students are upset with the company for dismissing nearly 75 undocumented workers in June 2012. All workers in the United States must provide their employment documentation to prove their citizenship or legal working status. ICE informed Palermo's dozens of their workers had fraudulent alien ID or social security numbers of the use of fraudulent alien ID or social security numbers by dozens of their workers.

    With the help of liberal immigration advocacy group Voces de la Frontera, workers filed a petition to form the Palermo's Worker Union and numerous unfair labor practices with the National Labor Relations Board. The Milwaukee Region of NLRB dismissed most of the charges with the General Counsel of the NLRB in Washington confirming the ruling last week while the General Counsel of NLRB in Washington upheld the ruling last week.

    Students at UW-Milwaukee took over the Palermo's Pizza Stand in the Student Union on Tuesday, May 7. A few students stood behind the counter and draped a cloth over pizza to purchase. Some students were behind the counter and draped a cloth over the pizza to purchase. The pizza was contaminated by the occupiers becoming making it unsuitable for sale. A statement from the University said that because the leftist students overran the pizza stand, it would require the stand would have needed extensive cleaning.

    Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Jim Hill told the crowd the closure "gives us time to continue conversations and dialogues with you on the issue." The protestors and Voces immediately heralded the decision as a victory. Hill's interaction with the students was caught on video.

    On Wednesday, the UWM Spokesman Tom Luljak attempted to walk back the decision in an appearance on Milwaukee conservative Charlie Sykes' radio show. Luljak stated the closing of pizza stand was due to a pre-planned construction project and Palermo's pizza is still available on campus.

    In a phone call with Luljak, he stated the Palermo's pizza stand would be back on campus when the renovations are completed; further stating UWM is neutral on the labor dispute. 

    He also noted that even although protestors did not face arrest on Tuesday, the Office of Student Affairs might seek some actions. According to Luljak, a UWM police captain decided not to arrest the students in an attempt to end the demonstration peacefully. 

    While the leftist students are heralding the closure as a win, the incident is another example of utilizing bullying tactics to receive results. This is another example of radicals using bully tactics to get their way.
