Join the march for justice in NC tobacco fields
For the 7th year, the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC) has been pressuring tobacco companies to sign an agreement guaranteeing labor rights in their supply chain. On Thursday, May 7th, farmworkers and their supporters will once again march in Winston-Salem where Reynolds American will be holding its annual shareholders meeting.
What: March on Reynolds
When: Thursday, May 7, 2015 beginning at 10:00 AM
Where: Parking at Lloyd Presbyterian Church, 784 N Chestnut St, Winston-Salem, NC 27101
Let us know you’re coming: https://www.facebook.com/events/383153628536172/
In the last two years, FLOC has been in discussions with tobacco companies around a solution to the abuses in NC tobacco fields.
However, the industry would rather implement programs that only touch the surface of the issues in the NC fields rather than sign an agreement with FLOC, guaranteeing labor rights in their supply chain, so workers can negotiate their own solutions.
So until they sign an agreement, this campaign continues!
