SUPPORT THE STRIKING AND LOCKED OUT SUPERMARKET WORKERS'
FIGHT FOR JUSTICE!


Join the COMMUNITY FOOD DRIVE sponsored by the Community
Action Project to Support Labor, a project of the ANSWER
coalition.

DROP OFF YOUR FOOD DONATIONS FOR THESE WORKERS FROM 11AM
TO 6PM, MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY AT 422 S. WESTERN AVE., RM
114, IN LOS ANGELES.

Donate canned goods, powdered milk, non-perishable baby
food, beans, rice.

The first food distribution will take place on:

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 11 A.M., AT Vons Supermarket at
PICO & FAIRFAX

Help feed 70,000 families before the holidays.
The UFCW grocery workers have been on strike or locked out
of their jobs for weeks.  Their struggle to keep
healthcare is a struggle for all of us.  If the
multi-billion dollar grocery industry wins then we all
lose.  Bosses everywhere are looking at this strike to see
if they to can cut or eliminate health care.  Don't let
them starve the brave strikers.

Ralphs, Albertsons and Vons are engaged in a smear and lie
campaign against these workers. What they don't want you
to know is this:

UFCW GROCERY WORKERS MAKE ON AVERAGE $312 PER WEEK.

CEO OF SAFEWAY (VONS/PAVILLION STORES), STEVEN BURD, GETS
OVER 1 MILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR WITH PAST YEAR BONUSES
EXCEEDING 1 MILLION DOLLARS.

HE IS LEADING THE CHARGE TO STEAL ONE BILLION DOLLARS
WORTH OF HEALTH CARE BENEFITS FROM GROCERY WORKERS WHILE
EXPANDING A TWO-TIER WAGE SYSTEM DESIGNED TO HELP BUST THE
UNION.

Please continue not to cross the picket lines. If you are
able, join ANSWER in walking the picket lines.
