SEATTLE, July 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, July 17 at 11 A.M. striking workers at Davis Wire will converge on the King County Courthouse in Seattle, where they will officially join a lawsuit alleging that the company created sweatshop-like conditions by working employees off the clock and denying employees rest and meal breaks in an unsafe environment and failing to pay them statutorily-required overtime wages.

After the courthouse action, workers will hold a 3 P.M. rally at Davis Wire in Kent (19411 80th Ave S) to marknearly 2 months since the start of the strike. Workers will be joined by family members, religious leaders, labor leaders, elected officials, and community members.

Larry Dunson, a 28-year production worker who lost his fingertip in an industrial accident at the facility, will be available to speak to the media at the courthouse and at the rally.
