El Super Delegation / Follow Up

To Latino and Latina Roundtable:

Below is an announcement of a delegation to El Super on May Day.  A number of our members are involved in May Day actions but if some can attend after the actions, please do.  I am going to propose that we have an LRT delegation at the end of May. 

DELEGATIONS:

1.  As we discussed, our first delegation will be May Day, Friday, May 1, 2015 3:00 PM, at El Super 960 Arrow Highway, Covina, CA 91722 (Flyer attached). 

  • The delegation will be led by Senator Ed Hernandez.  
  • Please let me know if other elected officials, executive directors of orgs, clergy or student leaders will join the May Day delegation.
  • We are asking if you join this delegation bring a copy of your letter, on your letterhead, addressed to Carlos A. Smith President/CEO of El Super (attached).  
  • We will deliver it to the store manager and encourage him to send a message to Mr. Smith to do the right thing.

2.  If you cannot make the May Day delegation, we will schedule smaller delegations every Wednesday for the month of May.  

  • All delegations will be at the union store in Covina, 960 Arrow Highway, Covina, CA 91722.
  • We ask you to have a contingency of at least 4 people from your organization
  • Walk through the store and encourage the workers
  • Deliver a copy of your letter to the store manager.

3.  If you would like to do your own delegation to the Non-Union El Super nearest you.  

  • We ask you to have a contingency of at least 4 people from your organization
  • Deliver a copy of your letter to the store manager and ask him to send a message to Mr. Smith to do the right thing.
  • Take pictures and send to me at sylvia1428@msn.com
  • Remember the Covina store is our Union store in the area.  If you go to a non-union the conversation should be about the boycott.

OTHER THINGS YOU CAN DO:

  • Pass a Resolution to Endorse the Boycott at El Super (attached) and send a copy.
  • If your organization endorses the Boycott.  Please complete the Endorsement Form (attached) and send a copy.
  • Inform your organization of Boycott and post on your organizations website and/or facebook page.  
  • Direct your members to the UFCW website for more information www.boycottelsuper.org

Thank you for your Solidarity.  I look forward to working with you on more issues in the future.  If you do any of the above please do not forget to send me a copy of your letter, resolution, endorsements.  Most importantly take pictures of your groups.  Send to me at
