Save Local Communities from a Football Lockout!
November 24, 2010

The NFL is threatening to ‘lock out’ its players next season unless they make outrageous concessions – for example, the NFL wants to take away ALL healthcare benefits from players and their families.

If there’s no football season, it would impact 150,000 jobs in each and every city with an NFL team. Local economies will be devastated. All because of the NFL owners’ greed.

Help save football season and stop economic devastation. Sign our petition to the NFL.

 
Tell Your Supermarket to Stop Exploiting Farmworkers!
October 21, 2010

It’s been 30 years since Florida tomato pickers – working under brutal conditions – got a pay raise. They earn 45 cents for each 32-pound bucket. Now, all they want is one more penny per pound – but they need our help to get it.

Help us demand fair wages and humane conditions for these workers by sending an email to the CEOs of Trader Joe’s, Publix, Stop & Shop, Giant, and Kroger. Ask the supermarkets to step up and push growers to give these workers the penny raise they deserve.

Take action and tell your supermarket to stop exploiting farmworkers!

 
Thank Eurofresh, a Company that Cares About Workers and the Planet!
October 07, 2010

Eurofresh tomatoes have been named "America’s Best Tasting." They’re greenhouse-grown and pesticide-free – so they’re better for consumers, workers, and the environment. And none of this success would be possible if Eurofresh didn’t truly respect its workers and their union.

Congratulate Eurofresh management and workers on running a company that is not only growing America’s best tomato, but providing good, green union jobs.

Sign our thank you card today!

 
Tell US Airways to Cut Ties with Anti-Union Consultants
September 10, 2010

Piedmont Airlines, a subsidiary of US Airways, is paying $375 per hour to the notorious unionbusting firm Labor Relations Institute (LRI) in a ploy to keep its workers from exercising their right to form a union.

Workers shouldn’t face interference or coercion – Piedmont and US Airways should allow their workers to decide for themselves if they want to form a union.

Ask US Airways CEO Doug Parker to cut ties with LRI. It could make all the difference for workers at Piedmont.

 
Tell Xerox to Stop Unionbusting and Shipping Jobs Overseas
August 19, 2010

Xerox recently told 19 workers they must transfer departments or leave the company.

What do these workers have in common? They’re all fighting for a fair union contract.

While Xerox tramples on its workers’ rights at home, Xerox’s outsourcing division is trying to ship those jobs – and thousands of jobs like them – overseas.

Tell Xerox CEO Ursula Burns: Our economy needs good jobs, not unionbusting and outsourcing.
