USi is supporting the fight for justice at Palermo’s Pizza in Wisconsin, USA. During a week of action in July a petition with more than 15,000 others was delivered to Palermo’s executives that sent a strong message that the workers won’t stand for unfair treatment of Palermo’s workers.
There is a fantastic website called a Slice for Justice which we encourage all our visitors to check out. The workers also have a Facebook page and twitter account called @PalermosStrike we would encourage you also to check out.
We will be talking to one of the organisers of the campaign – Brian Rothgery – at 6PM UK time, 12 noon in Wisconsin, on Wednesday 10 October for an update on this vital campaign.
On the right side of the home page there is a box called Web Conference, with a drop down list of meeting rooms. Select the meeting called “Palermos Pizza”.
Type in your name, and password 123.
Click ‘Join’, and you will be redirected to the web conference.
A window will pop up asking permission to use your web cam and microphone, as well as the opportunity to choose devices and edit preferences. Allow, and click ‘join audio’. If possible, use a head set, as computer speakers can cause feedback.
Your web cam won’t come on automatically. There is a camera icon in the top left hand corner of the screen. If you click that a video window will open with a ‘play’ button at the bottom. If you click that your video will go live.
If you don’t have a web cam and mic, you can still participate by typing questions into the chat box.
You can ask questions by typing them in the chat area to the right of the screen, or by clicking the hand icon.
Please join us – we look forward to speaking to you.
