March 14 - Protest -call out- 4:30pm | Justice for Fubonn Workers Coalition

The Justice for Fubonn Workers Coalition is announcing an action for Friday, February 14th. We are supporting Norma and Marisal - two former Fubonn grocery workers, and their demand for deserved money due to mistreatment and forced "off the clock" work


THIS PICKET FOLLOWS THE FIRST COURT DATE FOR THE LAWSUIT AGAINST THE FORMER FUBONN WORKERS AND PORTLAND SOLIDARITY NETWORK ORGANIZERS. THIS IS GOING TO BE AN IMPORTANT PICKET TO ATTEND, AND WILL BE LARGER THAN PREVIOUS ONES.

We meet at 4:30pm in front of USA Pawn(8001 SE Powell blvd) Shortly after we will march to Fubonn grocery. (SE 82nd Ave)!

Disclaimer: this campaign is against Fubonn Grocery solely; we are not targeting other stores in the shopping center.

After six months of aggressive campaigning, Fubonn responded by filing a lawsuit against Norma and Marisal and two community organizers. A clear attempt to silence dissent amongst workers, who would speak out about terrible conditions, as well as an attack on the right of workers and allies to organize in their community. We have continued our campaign, forcing Fubonn to the negotiating table.
