PICKET AGAINST SHAWS!
20 Mar 2010
Stand up for Shaw's Warehouse Workers!

http://www.massjwj.net/content/shaws-workers-strike

Our brothers and sisters at the Shaw's warehouse in Methuen went out on strike on March 7th. Shaw's had demanded concessions and the right to bring in temp workers to replace workers who leave. Shaw's, like other grocery stores, has been successful thanks in no small part to the recession which has driven people to eat at home and buy generics. This company is profiteering from our hardships and is greedily demanding more profits at the expense of their workers.
Strike Fund!

You can also help striking Shaw's worker by contributing to the Strike Fund. Checks can be made out to "UFCW Local 791 Methuen D.C. Strike Fund" Mail to: UFCW Local 791 55 Norfolk Avenue South Easton, MA 02375

Picket Lines!

Please join the warehouse picket line at 100 Danton Drive, Methuen, Massachusetts 01844. There is also picketing at the various stores from 8AM-8PM. Stores in the metro Boston area have the most need for volunteers because they are the farthest from the homes of these workers. Can you join them on the following lines.....
