SEIU & UFW is boycotting Gallow Wines, by the way. A recent email alert:
Lately, Gallo Wines is worried about too much publicity. And more specifically, they're worried about the Internet. Why? Because they're doing something wrong.

The Gallos are one of America's wealthiest winemaking families, but their seasonal contract workers often endure miserable living conditions without health benefits. The Gallos are right about one thing--they should be very, very worried about the power of the Internet. By adding your name to the Gallo boycott, you'll send a message to Gallo confirming their worst fears--that exploiting workers can have a very high cost.

Already, tens of thousands of people from across the country have pledged their support in this boycott, started by the United Farm Workers. It's simple: by standing together, we can convince the Gallos to do the responsible thing. Actions have consequences--and with your help, the Gallos are about to find out that they can't get away with mistreating their workers.

The famous winemakers have already been found guilty in 2004 by the State of California of illegally trying to get rid of their workers' union, the Cesar Chavez-founded United Farm Workers. Add your name to the boycott and join Americans across the country in sending a strong message for economic justice.

Your support means so much to the workers in California. Thank you.

In solidarity,
Andy Stern

P.S. Please take a moment to forward this email to your family and friends. Every person who adds their voice to the boycott brings us a step closer to victory.
