Support tobacco farmworkers at Pantry shareholder meeting (3/10)

Mar 1 2013 FLOC Kangaroo action

Give the largest purveyor of Reynolds cigarettes a piece of your mind

Tobacco farmworker supporters are organizing to have a presence at the corporate headquarters of The Pantry, Inc. in Cary, NC during the company’s annual shareholders meeting on Tuesday, March 10. This will be the third year in a row since farm laborers and their supporters escalated their campaign to get Reynolds American to end the abuses in its tobacco supply chain by taking the matter up with the company that sells more Reynolds tobacco products than any other.

Specifically this year the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC) is looking for folks who can go and matching them up with proxies to attend the shareholders meeting.

What: Shareholder meeting of The Pantry, Inc.
When: Tuesday, March 10, 2015 at 10:00 AM
Where: 305 Gregson Drive, Cary, North Carolina 27511
RSVP: Let us know you’d like to attend with an email to both Dave (daustin@mindspring.com) and Justin (jflores@floc.com)

Send your response to both Dave (daustin@mindspring.com) and Justin Flores (jflores@floc.com) if you are able to attend. You’ll be provided a proxy from a Pantry shareholder that will allow you to attend the meeting.
