(en) Britain, Picket against Whole Foods victimisations

Date Tue, 27 Dec 2011 14:39:17 +0200

Today saw the London Solidarity Federation hold a picket in support of a victimised Whole Foods worker. The action was held in conjunction with protests in Boston, New York, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, Reno and San Francisco. ---- The demonstration had been called in defense of Natalia, a San Francisco Whole Foods worker who was sacked for speaking up in support of herself and her workmates and took place outside the Soho branch of Whole Foods in London. ---- The picket was a resounding success. SF members turned up from both the North and South London locals (including a visitor from Hull SF) and were supported by Anarchist Federation members and trade unionists. Public reaction was overwhelmingly positive, with numerous customers not only vocalising support, but refusing to go into the shop. Some of the most vociferous supporters even went into the store to speak to management about the abuses taking place in San Francisco.

This activity was bolstered even further as SolFedders entered the store to speak to and flier customers directly.

Our message to Whole Foods is simple: International solidarity will continue until Natalia is reinstated with back pay.

The flier we handed out

Stop Whole Foods Victimisations

We’re standing here today to demand justice
for an unfairly sacked Whole Foods worker.
Natalia was a long-term employee at the Whole Foods in San Francisco.
She was respected by her colleagues for speaking up for herself and her
co-workers. For her outspokenness, management first tried to promote.
When she turned that down, she was sacked without due process or cause.
The demand is simple, full reinstatement for Natalia with back pay.
Please voice your demand for Natalia’s reinstatement by emailing Whole
Foods Regional President David Lannon - david.lannon@wholefoods.com

Who are we and why do we care?
The London local sections of the Solidarity Federation
are part of an organisation that encourages work-
ers self-organisation and collective action, whether
capitalism likes it or not. We are happy to lend our
solidarity and support to Natalia and to any other
worker that has faced bullying and victimisation at
the hands of any employer. Get in touch if you have!
Our answer is solidarity, mutual aid and direct action.
