Californians: stand with restaurant workers

October 7, 2014

As a supporter of UUSC, you know the importance of making our voices heard when it comes to worker justice. I am writing to ask for your participation in actions at Darden restaurants in California on Thursday.

What: Solidarity actions across the country with workers at Darden-operated restaurants. The Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry of California (UUJMCA), in collaboration with the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, is coordinating the response in California.

Where: A city near you. We are matching participants up to take actions that involve 3–15 people at Darden locations near them.

Why: Darden is the world’s largest full-service restaurant company, with brands like Olive Garden, the Yard House, Bahama Breeze, and more. At the same time they are one of the worst companies when it comes to worker treatment.

When: Thursday, October 9 — the day before the Darden shareholder meeting.

We will be matching participants up for actions near them and contacting everyone on Wednesday. If you don’t get a chance to sign up online, call us at 916-441-0018, ext. 101, and we will get you plugged in.
