El Super Candlelight Vigil on Wed. at 6 PM in Covina

Please join us for a candlelight vigil in support of El Super Workers

Wednesday November 25, 2015

6:00 PM

El Super  960 E. Arrow Hwy, Covina, CA

We have continued pressure on El Super with many actions, including delegations, the boycott, filing wage claims and have extended our fight in Mexico with the parent company Chedraui.  For more information www.boycottelsuper.org.  Although we have won in some areas, we still do not have a contract.  

We would like to notify you that we have started talking to our members about a potential strike.  If we go out on strike it will be at our Union store in Covina (El Super 960 E. Arrow Hwy, Covina, CA).  There won’t be much notice as this must come as a surprise to the store.

Many of you have stood by the workers in the past.  Today, we ask your support as the workers take this courageous step.  If and when they go out on strike, I will send out an emergency text to you so that you can join the line for 1-2 hours. Please respond to this email with the best number to text you and let me know what time is more convenient for you to join the line. 

Here are ways you can help.

  • Join the picket line. Bring people with you.  Bring your enthusiasm.
  • Make signs of support
  • Bring noise makers
  • Bring snacks for the picketers
  • If you play an instrument, know a musical group, danzantes, or entertainment. 
  • Possible community candle light vigil, time to be determined.
  • students, community, children are welcomed to join.

Talking strike is very scary, but having friends like you keeps us strong.

Thank you!
