Unifor’s commitment to social and economic justice doesn’t stop at Canada’s borders. We are a union that fights injustice globally.
One of our international fights is being led by Unifor members working at Coca Cola’s bottling facilities in Alberta and Ontario. Unifor has signed on to the International Union of Foodworkers’ (IUF) campaign to hold Coke responsible for the human rights abuses of the third-party bottlers it employs in countries like Indonesia, Haiti, and the Philippines.
We can make a difference in these workers’ lives by showing solidarity and giving them our support.
I encourage you to participate in a Unifor day of action to insist the company respect workers’ rights and immediately remedy abuses by its third-party bottlers.
On Tuesday, November 20, you can take the following three actions:
1. Download the Unifor mobile app for Apple or Android and under Solidarity Action, send a message to Coca Cola CEO James Quincey
2. Take a photo holding a sign with the hashtag #CokeZeroRights and post to Twitter
3. Share the attached graphic on your Facebook page with this link: http://www.iuf.org/show-ccww.php
Together we can force Coca Cola to recognize workers’ rights. I look forward to seeing your activism on November 20.
