According to CWC's Executive Director, ..., 31 Oct 2014 [cached]
According to CWC's Executive Director, Leone Jose Bicchieri, "Yesterday I personally delivered these charges to the EEOC and IDOL to make our petitions clear: Workers must receive the records of the hours billed for their work so they can see if their wages have been stolen or not.
"By not maintaining these records, MVP can say that African Americans didn't apply for work because there's no way to prove they indeed went to MVP," Bicchieri explains.
"We call on the EEOC and IDOL to do a thorough investigation and assess stiff sanctions against MVP if found in non-compliance," concludes Bicchieri.

Leone Jose Bicchieri
Leone Jose Bicchieri has almost 20 years experience organizing Latino and other immigrant workers, workers of all backgrounds, and organizing around community and immigration issues. He is currently Senior Organizer at the Chicago-based Center for New Community, where he is Coordinator of the Midwest Immigrant Health Project, a community-based effort to organize immigrant workers (largely Latinos) around health care access, as well as in-plant health and safety issues in several meatpacking communities in the Midwest.
Before joining the Center for New Community in early 2007, Bicchieri was Lead Organizer for two years with a "Justice for Janitors" campaign in Madison, WI. In 2003 Bicchieri was a national staff person with the Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride, coordinating the 13-city route which the two Los Angeles buses took across the country to the East Coast. He came to Chicago in 2000 to work with Interfaith Worker Justice, where from 2000-2003 he coordinated a national coalition to bring justice to the poultry industry, both to plant workers as well as to chicken farmers, primarily in Arkansas, North Carolina, and other southern states.
Mr. Bicchieri headed a community organizing campaign in Milwaukee's Latino neighborhood 1999-2000, and from 1991-1999 he was an organizer (and member of the Board of Directors) with Oregon's Farmworker Union, known by its Spanish acronym of PCUN. Leone worked with Witness for Peace in a rural war zone in Nicaragua from 1988-1991, collaborating with the local catholic parish to document the effects of the Contra War.
Leone was recently invited to join the Board of Directors of the Main Street Project, which is a project of the League of Rural Voters. Bicchieri graduated from Reed College in 1988 with a B.A. in Anthropology. He has lived and studied abroad, and has traveled widely in Mexico, Central America, Europe, and Russia.
