UFCW Union Members are defending the benefits and wages of all working people

Honor the Picket Lines! Don't shop at Vons/Pavillions, Ralphs, or Albertsons!

The supermarkets have declared war on working people. Now it's time to fight back!

As their profits rise, Vons, Ralphs, and Albertsons are demanding that hard-working employees pay over $1 billion in health care costs and take severe wage cuts.

Profits for the greedy "Big Three" have skyrocketed over the past five years. Their sales have increased 32%, 84%, & 123%. Also, compensation for the grocery executives has risen 260% over the same period. On average, they each make $2.6 million every year. Plus, the top 15 executives own over $70 million in stock options!

When Vons workers went on strike, Ralphs and Albertsons locked out their employees who now cannot return to work. More than 70,000 UFCW workers are currently out on picket lines fighting for union and workers' rights. These workers are defending the benefits and wages of all working people. The supermarket bosses are heartless and cruel. They care more about profits than people. If the bosses succeed, it will be a setback for every working person.

UFCW workers represent all of us. Support the striking and locked out workers. Together we will win!

Come to Tuesday's ANSWER meeting to find out how you can support the strikers.

Every Tuesday, 7pm
422 S. Western Ave., #114
Los Angeles.
