Delivering Letters to Kroger for Farmworker Justice

The U.K. SSU has now collected over 100 signatures on a letter asking Kroger to pay one cent more per pound of tomatoes and to enter a code of conduct agreement, to improve the wages and working conditions of immigrant farmworkers in Florida.

On Thursday, December 9, at 12:10 pm, we will be assembling on the public sidewalk at 722 Euclid Avenue to debrief and then to deliver the signed letters to the management of the Euclid Avenue Kroger. All are welcome to join us in peacefully making known our concerns, as customers of Kroger, about the human rights of Florida farmworkers.

If you have not yet signed the letter to Kroger, please sign the online version by Thursday: http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.change.org%2Fpetitions%2Fview%2Flexington_ky_asks_kroger_to_support_humane_treatment_of_farmworkers&h=0def3
