Update About Southern California Safeway Workers

If you know anyone that goes to the pickets on Fridays or Saturdays, let them know not to be there this week.
Malcolm Terence just let me know that the pickets this week have been CALLED OFF by Safeway workers in SoCal. This could be a good sign. I'll let you know when I find out more. If you know anyone that goes to the pickets on Fridays or Saturdays, let them know not to be there this week.

Thanks!
Evelyn

Disinfo

I believe the above is disinformation intended to keep people away from Safeway, because YOUR ACTIONS ARE WORKING!!!! KEEP PROTESTING!!! YOU ARE COSTING SAFEWAY MILLION$$$$!!!! The national organizing campaign has issued recent statements urging an ESCALATION OF TACTICS AGAINST SAFEWAY AND THE OTHER STORES!!!
 

no its true

I just spoke to Gary Lasky, Safeway picket coordinator for Santa Cruz County and SEIU Local 415 Home Care. Apparantly there is a tentative agreement in the works. There is supposed to be a vote of the workers on Sunday. Taking down the pickets is a sign of good faith in the negotiations. I still say "DON'T SHOP SAFEWAY" but for deeper reasons than the management's treatment of workers. I hope the employees get what they need, but I also hope they back me in my struggles!
 

Re: Update About Southern California Safeway Workers

The boycott should continue until the workers see and vote on the agreement. It should only be ended if the workers, not just the union officials, ratify an agreement.
