Join us Friday in Winston-Salem, NC
The North Carolina State AFL-CIO is proud to stand with Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC) in their struggle to get Reynolds to recognize its responsibility to meet with tobacco farmworkers and their union.
Join us and hundreds of allies this Friday in Winston-Salem at Reynolds American’s annual shareholders meeting.
What: March on Reynolds for Farmworker Justice
When: Friday, May 7 from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm
Where: Meet-up at Lloyd Presbyterian Church, 748 N Chestnut St Winston-Salem, NC
For three years, Reynolds CEO Susan Ivey has refused to discuss the abusive conditions facing the farmworkers who harvest the tobacco that makes Reynolds rich.
While Reynolds execs listen to shareholders on Friday, FLOC members and supporters will march for the thousands of farmworkers whose voices Reynolds refuses to hear.
