March for Justice at Shaw's


Shaw’s and their parent company, Supervalu, have forced the workers to go on strike since March 7 over unfair demands for workers to bear ALL the burden of increasing health care costs. On April 1, Shaw’s unilaterally cut off the workers’ health care.

Workers and supporters are marching to urge Shaw’s to come to the bargaining table with a proposal that keeps good jobs in the community, instead of a regressive proposal that lowers workers’ living standards.

WHAT: 300 families, 5 days, 60 mile march for justice at Shaw’s

WHEN: Kick–off event on Sunday, May 23 at 12 p.m. at the Methuen Warehouse and Ends on May 27th in Boston.

WHO: Striking Shaw’s warehouse workers, their families and supporters

STAND WITH SHAW’S WORKERS TO SAVE GOOD JOBS IN THE COMMUNITY!
