This October 15th Please Join Us for a Major Rally in
San Francisco...

Last year hundreds of you came out in support of
Southern California grocery workers in their fight to
protect healthcare for their families.

Now, our contract covering over 30,000 workers in
Northern California is up and we are in need of your
help again. The large grocery companies are trying to
effectively eliminate healthcare for more than half of
their workers by creating a two-tier system for new
hires.

The majority of the costs will be picked up by
taxpayers when these families are forced to get their
healthcare from the County public health systems.

Please join us this October 15th in San Francisco to
send a loud message to Safeway CEO Steve Burd and the
other grocers:

We will Fight to Defend Healthcare in Our Communities!
