Support Striking Palermo’s Workers during National Pizza Week

Support Striking Palermo’s Workers during National Pizza Week

It’s National Pizza Week (Jan. 9- Jan. 16) and we’re inviting pizza lovers everywhere to celebrate in solidarity with the striking workers at the Palermo’s Pizza factory in Wisconsin. Striking since last summer, these workers are remaining strong in their plea to management for the recognition of their union and the reinstatement of those who were wrongfully terminated.

In celebration, the United Steelworkers Local 1114 (4621 W. National Ave.) in Milwaukee, Wis., is holding the “A Slice of Justice” lunch at noon on Monday, Jan.14. Attendees will be enjoying Ian’s Pizza, the main supplier of pizza to the Madison Statehouse fight and an establishment that has always been at the forefront of workers’ rights.

Dave Campbell, Secretary-Treasurer from USW Local 675 and Manuel Zuniga from the car wash organizing movement in California, will be present and recognized as they deliver $500 to the Palermo's workers' strike fund. The USW local is committed to donating $500 a month to the Palermo's strike fund as long as the conflict continues. Following the lunch there will also be a solidarity picket on the factory site.

Supporters everywhere are invited to show their solidarity by donating to the workers' strike fund:
