As Shaw's workers, their families, and supporters March, a coalition of religious leaders from across Massachusetts will continue to show their support for the workers with a rally and press conference at 1 PM outside the Shaw's at the Prudential Center in downtown Boston. Religious leaders from around Massachusetts have been very supportive of the strike from the beginning. Earlier this month, a delegation visited Shaw's corporate headquarters to discuss ways to resolve the strike, but Shaw's executives refused to meet with them and even called the police on the peaceful gathering.
Senator John Kerry, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, and New Hampshire Governor John Lynch have all also come out in favor of a resolution to the strike that is fair and timely, and that keeps good jobs in the community.
Here is a list of today's stops along the march route:
Rally at Heritage Park

Lawrence, MA 01840

20 Shattuck Road
Andover, MA 01810
