ACT NOW - Veteran Wobbly at risk after 32 years on the job!
Submitted on Thu, 12/11/2008 - 6:27pm
Many of you know FW Greg Giorgio, a Wobbly with 18 years of dedicated service to our union. Over the years, Greg has done much for and asked little from our labor union - from his stewardship of Wobbly art to participation in countless solidarity actions.
Now Greg needs some solidarity and he needs it urgently. After announcing horse races at an off-track betting site for 32 years, Greg is set to be fired on Friday - only three years before his pension will fully mature. He's being fired in retaliation for filing a labor charge against the company over excluding him from participation in collective bargaining.
Greg and his fellow workers in upstate New York are carrying out a series of actions steps, but they've asked us around the world to participate in an e-mail action at the following link: http://citizenspeak.org/node/1406
Thank you very much for taking a moment now to add your voice for dignity.
P.S. If you'd like to communicate with FW Giorgio his e-mail is email@example.com
