MILWAUKEE--Federal labor officials declared Wednesday Milwaukee based Palermo's Pizza did not manipulate an immigration audit in retaliation for workers trying to form a union.

Voces de la Frontera had filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board after dozens of employees were fired.

NLRB did find merit to Voces claim that when workers went on strike June 1st they were threatened with losing their jobs.

Palermo's acknowledged that as a technicality and says they are interested in working out a settlement for that.

Voces de la Frontera celebrated a small victory but said they won't stop until all fired workers are reinstated.

Voces also plans to appeal to the NLRB in Washington D.C.
