Invitation to EMERGENCY COMMUNITY BRIEFING – JULY 8 on UFCW Contract Negotiations

Note:  the UFCW support turned out a number of their members to our recent press conference regarding the DAPA Supreme Court decision.  They have been consistent in supporting our many efforts throughout the years.  Now, they are asking for our support – and we urge you to attend this most important community Meeting.

BROTHERS AND SISTERS,

PLEASE ATTEND THIS VERY IMPORTANT BRIEFING AND HELP SPREAD THE WORD. FLYER IS ATTACHED.  REMEMBER TO RSVP IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO, Sylvia1428@msn.com.

Thank You for your continued support and solidarity. Sylvia

Emergency Community Briefing

 

The contract covering nearly 50,000 grocery workers expired in March, and the union has been attempting to negotiate a new deal with Ralphs, Vons and Albertsons. Grocery workers across Southern California, including UFCW 1428 voted overwhelmingly to reject the employers insulting offer and authorized a strike if contract negotiations break down.

 

We cannot do this without you.  Please join us for an Emergency Community Briefing to bring you up to date.  RSVP to Sylvia1428@msn.com

BROTHERS AND SISTERS,

The contract covering nearly 50,000 grocery workers expired in March, and the union has been attempting to negotiate a new deal with the Kroger Corporation (owner of Ralphs) and Cerberus Capital (owner of Safeway, Vons, Pavilions, and Albertsons). Grocery workers across Southern California, including UFCW 1428 voted overwhelmingly to reject the employers insulting offer and authorized a strike if contract negotiations break down.

We cannot do this without you.  Please join us for an Emergency Community Briefing to bring you up to date.  RSVP BY RESPONDING TO THIS EMAIL

“We don’t want to strike, we understand the impact on consumers, our communities, and our members,” said Rick Icaza, president of the largest local union representing grocery workers, UFCW Local 770. “But the out-of-state corporations and hedge funds controlling the stores may leave us no choice. Despite profits of over a half billion dollars, they are still demanding our workers give up retirement and health care security and forgo raises for two years. That’s not fair, and it’s not right.”

“Grocery workers are the front line for working class families in Southern California,” said John Grant, Secretary Treasurer of Local 770. “These corporations know that if they can take away our hard fought and modest retirement and health care security in the bright light of day, they will have no trouble doing the same to every other working family in California. We have a responsibility not just to our members and other grocery workers, but to every family fighting to make ends meet.”

“En el Centro Jornalero tenemos la costumbre de festejar la independencia de México, al igual que la de Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, y Honduras, con una rica comida y convivio y nuestras amistades de la comunidad y de las universidades.

También aprovechamos para aprender nuestra historia y vincular las luchas históricas con las actuales. Se le hace la cordial invitación a cada uno y una de ustedes!

#upcomingevents #markyourcalendars every year we celebrate#fiestaspatrias at the #PEOC #daylabor center, with food, music, and community. Since #Mexico#Guatemala#ElSalvador#Nicaragua,#CostaRica, and #Honduras all share the same #independenceday, it is a good opportunity to build bridges between the #Mexican and#CentralAmerican communities, as well as the #Chicanx and u.s.-born communities. And since #independence was (and is) a protracted#struggle, it gives us a chance to root ourselves in our history and connect to our current struggles. So please swing by beginning at 10:am on Tuesday #September15 and join us!”
