Monday, Nov 22 @ 11am: Rally at Love Park

Del Monte Fresh Produce Co. has cut at least 200 family-sustaining living wage stevedore jobs unionized under the International Longshoremen's Association Local 1291 at the Port of Philadelphia and is moving its business to a privately owned terminal that pays its workers barely minimum wage. These workers have served Del Monte loyally for twenty-two years; Del Monte gave them four days' notice before finalizing the details of their abandonment of these folks.

Meanwhile, Del Monte has posted record profits in each of the last two years.

Join us Monday, November 22nd, at 11 am in Love Park to protest Del Monte's callous behavior.
