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.

20 Mar 2010
Last year Harvard's clerical union lost 7% of its members. Through a combination of layoffs, attrition and a coercive early-retirement "offer," there are about 340 fewer HUCTW members in union jobs than there were last year. Five more union members were just notified that their employment will end in June. Harvard may be testing the waters to see if another mass layoff is possible.

Rank-and-file activists in my local *will not accept* the loss of more union jobs! We have already paid far too much for the "non-profit" University's reckless, speculative investment strategies. Despite its bad bets on hedge funds and private equity, etc., Harvard still enjoys a huge endowment of about $26 billion, the envy of every other university on earth.
