http://www.ufw.org/gallopetition.htm Sign a petition to help Gallo of Sonoma workers avoid a new Gallo wine boycott!

Gallo of Sonoma scion Matt Gallo refuses to extend health benefits to the 75% of his workers hired through farm labor contractors. During the holiday season, Gallo workers need you to send a message to Matt Gallo: Tell Matt Gallo to fulfill his promise. Agree to a UFW contract that supplies basic health benefits to employees of your farm labor contractors.

Tell Others!

Here's a brief letter you can send to your e-mail circle of friends, family and co-workers by copying and pasting the message below into an e-mail. Please only contact people who know you personally. Spam hurts our campaign.


Dear Friend,

I signed this petition on behalf of Gallo of Sonoma farm workers being denied basic health benefits by Matt Gallo. I think it is very important. Please get involved and sign the petition. Help the farm workers by e-mailing Matt Gallo with Gallo of Sonoma today.

You can take action by going to: http://www.ufw.org/gallopetition.htm.

Thanks for lending your voice too.

A negotiation is planned between Gallo and the UFW for June, and UFW wants to have 25,000 signatures for a petition to let Gallo know that they are ready for a full fledged boycott of them if they don't agree to give proper health coverage to their migrant workers. You can sing the petition at http://www.unionvoice.org/campaign/GalloPetition.

Can we please move this back to the main politick forum? No one ever goes on the action forum, and the whole point of this is to get people to become involved. I can't do that when they're not even seeing the topic.

http://www.unionvoice.org/campaign/FineLiving United Farm Workers is asking FineLiving Network (a major advertising martner for Gallo) to put pressure on Gallo over this issue. Send your letter and urge them to do so as well. If you haven't already signed the 'Gallo unfair' petition, sign it at http://www.ufw.org/gallopetition. Thank you for your support.

Here's another good UFW campaign to support, http://www.unionvoice.org/campaign/SB391LobbyDay/step1.tcl. It's a bill to give better treatment to workers who are exposed to pesticide drifts.

They don't? Since when?

Since almost no one has looked at this topic since it was moved, and since almost no one has looked at my "Free Annete Auguste" thread on action. Of course, for some reason no one will look at it on politick either. I guess that's not important to anyone here. Not many people seem that interested in Haiti.

I won't move it back, but I'll pin it. Maybe no one is really reading this because we all already subscribe to the UFW news letter and get these already... that's what I'm thinking.. but who knows.. I'll pin it for you tho.

Wow, that sounds great. I've sent messages asking for her term on the board of education to be renewed, cause the governator hasn't renewed it yet. How are you having this meeting? Is it something to do with education, or with UFW?

Does it have to do with the fast for education? You seem to be involved with alot of important activism. Keep it up.

I posted this in another thread but..

She was scheduled to go because she is in strong support of the movement (F4E) and I went to the Rally (as planned) and as soon as she was alone.. i went up to talk to her. I told her how I admired her so. she was cool.. she was like.. "thank you!" and then she asked "what's your name?" and I was like.. "My name's Mayra" and then she asked if I went to school and I said "Yes, I go to UCDavis" and then she was like... "that's Great!" and we chittchatted a bit... but she was running around like crazy!  My roomate was too scared to go up to her so what I did was i walked back to Dolores and introduced my roomate to her.. and then I took a picture with Dolores  How Classic! I took a pic with a Living Legend!  I'm pretty happy today.

Cool. Did she speak at all to the crowd? Do you know if I can find a video of the rally? I would like to see what happened.

Do you think she will be able to stay with the board of regents for education? I haven't got any update yet from UFW, so I don't really know what's going on with it. I have serious doubts about whether Arnold will renew her place there, but you never know.
