The Hands That Feed Us:
Workers of the Food Chain Unite, Demonstrate and March

Workers and supporters of The Coalition of Immokalee Workers‘ Campaign
for Fair Food at Chipotle and the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United‘s
Dignity at Darden Campaign met at the Capital Grille restaurant on E. 42nd
Street in NYC and then marched to a nearby Chipotle Restaurant for a
boisterous joint demonstration against worker exploitation by these two large
chain restaurants. Joining the protest were members of Local 1500, UFCW,
the Brandworkers’ Flaum Appetizing campaign and Hot and Crusty Bakery
workers, all celebrating organizing victories. The demonstration was the kick
off to a daylong conference by 14 unions and workers centers throughout the
country constituting the Food Chain Workers Alliance which is organizing the
close to 20 million workers throughout the U.S. in the food system – on farms
and in food processing and meatpacking plants, warehouses, grocery stores,
restaurants and food service establishments.

Excluded Workers Fight and Win
with
Ai-jen Poo, Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance

At a time of decline for traditional labor organizations, Ai-jen Poo from
the National Domestic Workers Alliance describes the growth and
successes of domestic workers organizing in NYS and around the
country. They have recently joined in an alliance, the Excluded Workers
Congress, with other immigrant based worker movements, many
taking the form of workers centers, representing national alliances of
workers in restaurants, day labor, taxi, formerly incarcerated workers,
guest workers & farmworkers. This is a rare hopeful moment for workers
too long excluded from labor law protections who need more support
from the union movement that in turn needs their vitality and innovative
approaches to organizing.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
