Brazos Immigration has succeeded in creating a program to focus efforts on worker rights and leadership training of the immigrant community–the workers’ rights center. The Workers’ Rights Center focus on developing immigrant leaders, helping workers recover stolen wages, educating the community about labor rights, and networking with state agencies and non-governmental organizations. After participating in leadership training and community organizing workshops, the center’s leadership reached out to local churches, businesses, and media outlets to educate them about labor rights and seek out new leaders. Through this effort, aggrieved workers sought support fighting workplace violations, recovering over $6,000 in unpaid wages with intervention, and Spanish-language radio asked for support in a 2-month-long voter registration and get out-the-vote campaign in the Latino community. In addition, the workers’ rights center actively pursued connections with state labor agencies, labor lawyers, and other worker rights organizations in Houston and Austin in order to provide services locally, where there are no such services. As a result, the workers’ rights center has joined the Justice and Equality in the Workplace Program, a network that regularly meets in Houston that includes Department of Labor, OSHA, EEOC, National Labor Relations Bureau, Fé y Justicia Interfaith Justice Worker Center, and the Houston Mayor’s Office, among others. Based on this new relationship, the workers’ rights center has presented two labor rights educational workshops led by EEOC, DOL and the Mexican Consulate, and will be providing a workshop with DOL and OSHA focused on construction workers in November 2016. An Austin non-profit labor law firm, the Equal Justice Center, has provided advice on wage recovery cases and legal representation to a group of custodial workers that were owed over $7,000, which is still under litigation.
