I Stand with CTUL for Fair Wages
and Working Conditions
for Retail Cleaning Workers in the Twin Cities
Centro de Trabajadores en la Lucha (Center of Workers United in Struggle), IWJ’s affiliate in the Minneapolis/ St. Paul area, stands up for workers every day. Today, CTUL needs you to stand up for them.
With the help of CTUL, workers who clean Cub Foods stores have been trying for over a year to engage Cub Foods in a dialogue about fair wages and working conditions.
Also with the help of CTUL, workers went on Hunger Strike for 12 days beginning at the end of May in a further effort to seek a dialogue. Now the parent company of Cub, SuperValu, is suing CTUL and its organizers personally.
Please sign the petition to support the workers.
I am concerned about the many reports of human rights violations taking place in retail cleaning. When retail cleaning workers earn sub-poverty wages and have increasingly stressful workloads, this has a negative impact on our entire community. Therefore, I stand firmly with the Centro de Trabajadores Unidos en la Lucha (CTUL) in calling on major retail chains (including Cub Foods, SuperValu, Target, and Lunds & Byerly’s) to partner with CTUL to create a code of conduct that guarantees fair wages and benefits for the workers who clean their stores.
