Why We March: Shaw's Workers Stand Strong for Justice

Straight from the mouths of Shaw's workers fighting for justice on the job:
"I am marching for all of us at the warehouse to get a fair contract with benefits. Right now I don't have health insurance and that puts my family in jeopardy." -- Jose Ortega, a husband and father of two who has worked at the Methuen warehouse for 12 years.

"I am marching to bring more attention to our struggle and hopefully bring Supervalu back to the table." -- Kenneth Campbell, a truck off-loader with 14 years on the job.

"I am marching to protect the health care benefits that Shaw's wants to take away from us." -- Miguel Farina, who has spent 8 years working for Shaw's at the Methuen warehouse.

These workers are standing strong for good jobs in their communities and affordable healthcare for their families. To learn more about their struggle, and to see what you can do to help, visit http://www.ufcwaction.org/site/PageNavigator/Shaws/March.
