Sign the Boycott Pledge!

Since June 2012, workers at non-union food service subcontractors in the Oakland Airport have been speaking out about violations of local, state and federal labor laws at their workplaces. They are calling for a fair process to decide whether to join a union, free from retaliation. The subcontractors have not agreed – and several of them have fired workers, cut their hours, and worked with the Port of Oakland to sanction workers who presented a petition to their managers. Now, UNITE HERE and workers are calling for a boycott of the non-union subcontractors at the airport, starting on Friday, August 31st. Join us and pledge your support!

Keep your eyes open for an app we are developing to keep the boycott list updated!
