The owner of several Twin Cities Jimmy John’s franchises said he will “vigorously defend” against federal regulator allegations that his company violated workers’ rights.

The National Labor Relations Board   agreed with members of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) that Miklin Enterprises was wrong to fire six employees after a public protest over sick leave, theStar Tribune reports.

The employees were fired after demanding improved sick leave by putting up posters near the Jimmy John’s stores that indicated sick workers might be making sandwiches, the newspaper reported.
