Wokers picket in front of the Sunny Day Car Wash in the Bronx on Wednesday

A Bronx car wash boss who says picketing workers are driving business away, failed Wednesday to persuade a judge to make the protesters stop.

More than a dozen immigrant “carwasheros” have been picketing for days in front of Sunny Day Car Wash on Third Ave., saying they want to join a union and are owed weeks in unpaid wages.

Owner Frank Roman filed legal papers in Bronx Supreme Court arguing the pickets are hurting his business and causing safety issues. He asked for a temporary restraining order to keep them 50 feet from the car wash.

But Judge Julia Rodriguez turned down the restraining order request and refused to schedule a hearing, saying she could not legally get involved in the labor dispute at this point.

Roman could not be reached for comment, and his lawyer did not return a phone call.

The workers say they began picketing after being fired for staging a walkout. They contend they cannot legally be fired for the job action.
