Labor Alerts/Labor News a service of Campaign for Labor Rights 1247 "E" Street SE, Washington, DC 20003 clr@igc.apc.org (541) 344-5410 http://www.compugraph.com/clr 150 DISNEY WORKERS FIRED IN L.V. MYLES PLANT! URGENT CALL FOR SOLIDARITY WITH HAITIAN FACTORY WORKERS [Information in this alert comes from the Disney / Haiti Justice Campaign, Village Station, P.O. Box 748, NY, NY 10014 - (212) 592- 3612; and Batay Ouvriye, P.O. Box 13326, Delmas, Port-au-Prince, Haiti (W.I.) Tel. 011 (509) 22-67-19.] Urgent Update: The Disney/Haiti Justice Campaign has received information from Batay Ouvriye that the situation at L.V. Myles in Haiti has worsened. Out of about a 500 person workforce, more than 150 workers have already been fired in an intense campaign to stamp out worker protest and to intimidate workers. Although workers are still protesting, this has come as a serious blow. The replies received from L.V. Myles in New York concerning this situation state that this is not the case and that workers have not been arbitrarily fired, it seems improbable that they can continue to deny this. The Disney/Haiti Justice Campaign strongly encourages all actions that can be taken to protest and denounce this injustice. Send your letters or faxes to: L.V. Myles 135 Madison Ave, 10th floor NY, NY 10016 NOTE THESE NEW NUMBERS--Tel: (212) 725-0900 or (212) 696-8420 Fax: (212) 268-1845 Mr. Michael Eisner, C.E.O. The Walt Disney Company South Buena Vista Street Burbank, CA 91521 Tel: (818) 560-1000 Fax: (818) 846-7319 This is an urgent call. Please act now in support of these workers. For more information, contact THE DISNEY / HAITI JUSTICE CAMPAIGN, VILLAGE STATION, P.0. BOX 748, NY, NY 10014 - (212) 592-3612; or BATAY OUVRIYE, P.O. Box 13326, Delmas, Port-au-Prince, Haiti (W.I.)
