>On Thursday July 10 picket lines went up at the Cargill meatpacking plant
in High River,Alberta, Canada a community of about 7,000 an hour south of Calgary. Cargill is one of the largest privately owned companies in the world, employing 76,000 people in 66 countries. The head office of this "family business" is in Minnesota. Cargill in High River employs over 1,600 workers and 94.2% of them voted for strike action after their contract expired in June. Cargill workers are currently organized in UFCW local 1118. >
>I have created a strike support page for them at:
>http://www.geocities.com/CapitolHill/5202/cargill.html
>
>This includes background articles and news stories on the strike, an
analysis of Cargill, email and fax numbers for both letters of support to striking workers and for protesting to Cargill. >
>Currently the local does not have web access so I have created an email
address for them for email messages, which I will fax them, >it is: strikesupport@usa.net
>
>UFCW Local 1118 will also take solidarity faxes. Their fax number is:
1-403-652-3378. >
>In solidarity,
>Eugene Plawiuk
