In October 2021, the Hudson Institute for Process Research (HIPR) illegally fired Abigail Schultz and Joshua Sturman for union organizing. Since then, HIPR has continued to wage a campaign of threats and harassment against the organizers. This campaign includes filing a lawsuit against Abigail and Joshua as part of the company’s ongoing attempts to deprive employees of their legal right to organize.

If this lawsuit is allowed to stand, it will have a chilling effect on workers’ rights everywhere.
