Letter writers: United Farm Workers need your help!

http://www.unionvoice.org/campaign/Galloneg72105/step1....

Email the Gallos on the eve of Thursday's negotiations
-snip-
Tomorrow, Thursday, July 21, the United Farm Workers and Gallo of Sonoma workers attend our next contract negotiating meeting with the Gallos. Before that meeting we need your help in creating additional pressure by emailing the Gallos and letting them know consumers are watching and expect them to genuinely bargain with the UFW.

The Gallos abuse, cheat and deny the great majority of their Sonoma County vineyard workers benefits, job protections and humane living conditions. They also pay all their workers wages that are much lower than other area wine grape growers. The Gallos were found guilty last November by the state of California of illegally trying to get rid of their workers' union, the Cesar Chavez-founded United Farm Workers. In the face of the Gallos' unwillingness to negotiate a fair contract with its workers, the UFW called for our second boycott of Gallo wine on June 14.
