2018 Solidarity Award Honorees

Paula De Leon Carrillo, Mirna E. Pacaja, and Margarita Fuentes Herrera

Before #metoo gained widespread power, Paula De Leon Carrillo, Mirna E. Pacaja, and Margarita Fuentes Herrera were organizing their coworkers to stand up to severe sexual harassment in Massachusetts’ seafood processing plants and to demand better working conditions, including access to drinking water and adequate toilets. With support from Centro Comunitario de Trabajadores, Paula, Mirna, and Margarita have led the fight for dignified and just work for temp workers and the industries they staff across southeastern Massachusetts. Justice at Work is honored to provide legal support for their efforts, and to recognize their organizing skills and strength with a 2018 Solidarity Award.

 

Nicole Decter

As a partner at Segal Roitman, Nicole Decter stands out in Boston’s talented labor and employment legal field for her commitment to providing worker centers with training, research, and casework. In 2012, as lead counsel, she joined Justice at Work to represent ten immigrant workers who sought the support of their local worker center, Fuerza Laboral, after being denied the prevailing wage while working as shakers on the back of municipal trash trucks. After six years of hard-fought litigation, the workers have prevailed in Superior Court. Nikki is now orchestrating their legal response to the company’s appeal. Justice at Work, our partners, and our clients are fortunate to count on her expertise and steadfast solidarity.
