PLUS National Day of Action - Chipotle Grill
Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Join the FCWA, and Alliance member the CIW and
Fair Food allies across the country telling Chipotle to make a commitment to farmworkers' rights!
For six years, Chipotle has refused to come to the table with Coalition of Immokalee Workers to sign a Fair Food Agreement,
securing labor protections for workers in the fields of Florida.
Despite all of the promotion of having "sustainable vegetables" and cage-free,anti-biotic free meat, Chipotle is still selling Food WithOUT Integrity.
Join us in telling CEO Steve Elis and Chipotle that we won't listen to any more excuses. Sign the Fair Food Agreement NOW!
Check out the CIW site for a list of actions
planned from New York to Oakland. Want to
