'Illegally' Fired Riviera Theatre Stagehands Get Support From Worker Advocates, Pat Quinn (VIDEO)

Former stagehands at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago who were allegedly fired by JAM Productions for union activity want their jobs reinstated, back pay and a fair unionization process.

The fired stagehands rallied Wednesday morning with their allies, including former Democratic Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, outside JAM Productions' offices at 207 W. Goethe St. 

About 40 stagehands at the Riviera were fired by the company in September after they signed authorization cards for a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) union election. 

"A lot of guys signed cards in August or July and early September, before the date we were fired," said former JAM Productions stagehand Justin Huffman, 40. "I think it's pretty clear that it was a reaction."
