Rally For Good Jobs On The Fast Food Supply Chain

http://www.popularresistance.org/rally-for-good-jobs-on-the-fast-food-supply-chain/

Around 400 workers in Stockton, CA who make cups and other packaging for Starbucks and fast food companies like McDonalds are facing sharp cuts in their benefits, hours and wages in addition to the replacement of good union jobs by temporary workers. Most are workers of color, and all are members of the Association of Western Pulp & Paper Workers. AWPPW has been in negotiations with the company for a full year, and the next round of talks will begin in early December. Accordingly, AWPPW and its allies are planning two protests in Seattle as part of an international day of action to fight back against poverty wages, cuts in benefits, and unsafe working conditions throughout the fast food supply chain. We’re working in partnership with the IWW Starbucks Union, Pactiv New Jersey & Unite New Zealand.
