Hi ...


Demand Justice for Abused Workers
Despite facing years of illegal intimidation, firings, and other scare tactics, the workers in Tar Heel have continued to fight for dignity and justice. They have joined with workers and community supporters to demand fair labor practices, and your support is needed more than ever.
Demand justice for abused workers>>

Help spread the word  
You were fighting for the rights of average workers when you signed Attention Shoppers! Wal-Mart Workers Need a Voice at ThePetitionSite on Care2.com. And now you can help stop the abusive treatment Smithfield Processing employees are being forced to endure.

Send a message demanding an end to worker intimidation and abuse>> http://go.care2.com/e/dtqs/g09/HMz_

Brutal conditions, crippling injuries, inhumane treatment - this is what workers face this every day at Smithfield processing plants.

The National Labor Relations Board has found that the Smithfield company routinely uses racial epithets, assault, threats of deportation, and unlawful firings to intimidate workers. This is outrageous and must stop.

Cited by Human Rights Watch, the National Labor Relations Board, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for creating an environment of intimidation and fear, Smithfield has strenuously resisted any attempts by their workers to organize a union.
