(Photo by Beata Zawrzel/NurPhoto via Getty Images) Chipotle Mexican Grill agreed to pay nearly a quarter of a million dollars to dozens of former employees from its shuttered Maine restaurant. The fast casual food chain agreed to issue $240,000 in back pay to 24 employees who worked at the Augusta location "as part of a settlement for illegally closing the restaurant in the middle of a union organizing drive" in July, according to the Maine AFL-CIO. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) confirmed to FOX Business that the money will be issued to the employees who were on the payroll when the store was shuttered. Maine AFL-CIO, a state federation of over 160 unions across Maine, announced on Facebook that this marks a "win for food service workers across the country." MICHIGAN BECOMES FIRST STATE IN DECADES TO REPEAL 'RIGHT-TO-WORK' LAW"It sends a message to corporations that shutting down a store and blackballing workers didn't work for Chipotle, and it won't work for them either," Brandi McNease, a former Augusta Chipotle employee and lead Chipotle United organizer, said in a statement. The NLRB announced in November that the company violated federal labor law by closing a Maine restaurant before labor organizers had the chance to try and unionize. Workers at the store filed a petition with the NLRB in June seeking to hold a union election.
