*RALLY! *

*For Striking Shaw’s Workers *

* *

*Thursday, March 18th*

*3:30 PM *

*At Shaw’s Supermarket*

*45 Morrissey Boulevard** in Dorchester*

* *

Parking is available across Morrissey Boulevard at SEIU 1199 (150 Mt. Vernon
St., Dorchester)

*Members of UFCW Local 791 who work at the Shaw's Supermarkets Distribution
Center in Methuen, MA voted overwhelmingly to reject the company's final
contract offer and 310 union members have now been on strike since Sunday,
March 7th. The company's substandard wage proposal combined with its demand
for increased employee health care contributions would result in a net loss
of income for workers during the term of the contract. The company’s final
offer also allowed for the use of outside agencies to perform work at the
facility, costing union jobs. Please join UFCW Local 791, the Massachusetts
AFL-CIO, the Greater Boston Labor Council, Jobs with Justice and other
supporters to tell Shaw’s  to respect their workers and to reach an
agreement that preserves good jobs with quality wages and benefits! *

*For more information, contact John Drinkwater of the Massachusetts AFL-CIO
at (781) 324-8230 or jdrinkwater at massaflcio.org.*
