Change to Win: California Grocery Workers Need Your Help

It's deja vu in Southern California, with the big chains ganging up on workers and threatening to lock them out of stores—just like they did three years ago, when companies forced 60,000 workers out into the streets in an attempt to eliminate meaningful health care coverage.

Today, workers at grocery chain Supervalu are being faced with the same threats -- and you can help by telling SuperValu's CEO to do the right thing for his workers:

Supervalu's workers had hoped that when Supervalu bought Albertsons, another major California grocery chain, the merger would generate a more positive atmosphere in contract negotiations.

But that hasn't happened. Supervalu appears to be on the same negative path that produced the nearly five month disruption three years ago. The company is refusing to provide workers with affordable health coverage and a living wage—the same workers that are working so hard to make Supervalu and Albertsons successful and profitable once more.

Supervalu needs to know that America is watching them. You can help -- tell Supervalu CEO Jeffrey Noddle that you support grocery workers:

Tell Mr. Noddle to do the right thing and extend the Southern California grocery workers a contract with affordable health care and a living wage.

Remember, Supervalu may not want to hear from you. They might try to block your email, causing it to be sent back to you. If your email gets blocked, please call the company and give them your message in person instead. Just dial (952) 828-4000 and tell the receptionist that you have a message for Mr. Noddle.

We're more powerful when we speak together -- and California's grocery workers need that power on their side. So let's make it happen!
