Costco Members in Solidarity with Palermo Workers


http://costcomembersforworkersrights.tumblr.com/

About
We are members of Costco Wholesale (and non-members who might consider signing up) that want Costco to live up to its reputation and values.

Costco's Supplier-Code-of-Conduct says all suppliers must respect workers' right to unionize.

Soon after speaking up for a union at Palermo's nearly 90 workers were illegally fired or permanently replaced. Costco Wholesale is the largest distributor of Palermo's.

We join with the workers asking Costco to drop Palermo's until the dispute is resolved.




I am a Costco member and I shop here because Costco treats their employees well and respects worker’s rights. I spent $2,438 here in 2012 and I just told the manager of this store to join the boycott of Palermo’s. Costco should drop Palermo’s Pizza and their “Kirkland” brand now!




I shop at Costco because the are NOT Walmart/Sam’s Club. They pay well, offer good benefits, and respect their workers. I spent $6,446 at Costco this year. I just told the manager that Costco should respect their own Supplier Code of Conduct and drop pizza made by Palermo’s!
