We have been informed about a Coca Cola Worker's strike in Hartford CT. These workers have been working without a contract for over 11 months before negotiations broke down, and now over 350 workers are behind a picket line.
Make no mistake this is non other than another attempt at Union Busting by Coca Cola.
Now in the busiest of all seasons, Coca Cola is not willing to sit and talk to them. Rumor is that they will not sit and talk to them until after labor day. Are you kidding me?
Coca Cola is willing to pay an exuberant amount of money in transportation of its goods, just to avoid coming to an understanding with the Union, again this is nothing other than Union busting.
But here is where we come into play, we need to show in numbers, your support to end this evil practice.
Once again Coca Cola demonstrate they are on the wrong side of the issue, 350 families' lively hood is at stake here, therefore we need you to show in numbers your disapproval.
Coca Cola is not only involved in a racial discrimination lawsuit in New York, but now Coca Cola is adding another chapter in its disgraceful history, by taking a Union Busting stance.
As one can clearly see, dropping out of ALEC was just a smoke screen to fool the public, Coca Cola still is on the wrong side of life
Let us join together and condemn this evil practice, please join us by liking our page on Facebook, which is http://facebook.com/Thecoke16, and by doing so, you are giving us power to put pressure on Coke to sit down and do the right thing by the workers. We can not do this without your support!
If you do not have a Facebook account, setting up one is easy, many of you have already done it and giving us your support, again, we need numbers. Set up your account if you do not have one, creating it is fairly quick and easy, get a free email account from yahoo or other service and use it just for Facebook. I, myself, used to boycott Facebook, until I realized it can be used successfully to do good. Occupy Atlanta and other Occupy movements already use it with great success.
Together we can accomplish great things! Thank you for your support.
