Informational Picket at Dominos Farms, Ann Arbor, Saturday, Sept. 15 1-3pm

Posted: September 6, 2012 in Uncategorized

The Dominos Workers Solidarity Campaign (North America), in solidarity
with the Australian General Transport Workers Association and the
Anarcho-Syndicalist Federation-IWA, is appealing to you and your
members to support the delivery drivers employed by Domino’s Pizza
Enterprises in Australia on Saturday, September 15th.

Since the Ann Arbor, MI is Dominos world headquarters,
North Americans can play a key and important role in
helping our sister and fellow Australians work out.

The Issues:

The Domino’s drivers have been engaged in a dispute with management
since 9th of April. The key issue in this struggle has been an
overnight 19% wage reduction. Meanwhile, the drivers have been sold
out by their current union, the SDA, which has done nothing to fight
the cuts. The GTWA and the ASF-IWA are calling for an International
Day of Solidarity with the Domino’s Drivers on Saturday, September 15,
2012.

The Aim:

The aim of the Day is to alert Domino’s management that workers and
members of the community in North America and elsewhere stand in
solidarity with the Australian delivery drivers in their struggle
against the wage cut and in support of their right to organize under
the banner of the General Transport Workers Association (GTWA). The
GWTA Facebook page can be viewed here:

What shall we be doing that day?

The Australian friends are asking that folks engage in peaceful
Informational picketing, informational leafleting and other peaceful
Activities aimed at informing local management and workers about the Australian
dispute. It is hoped that the local stores will report to corporate
headquarters about the informational activities and this would put
pressure on the company.

The informational picketing can be both large and small.

Some other ideas which have been discussed are:

– Outreach to workers at local Domino’s location a few days in
advance, let them know you will not be protesting them.

– Informational Picket outside of Domino’s locations, hand out
available solidarity fliers. Team up with local workers and activist
organizations like Occupy.

– Make sure if you do an informational picket to start up a tip jar
for the workers.

– You could also have a DJ or Dance party as part of picket to make it
fun. Cook up pizzas.

– Participate in a Phone Zap to every single Domino’s store, personal
cell phones of executives, home phones, management training centers,
etc (Coordinate this with a Text Loop/Spredsheet)

In the end:

The goal is informational actions with the main point to have Domino’s
restore the 19% wage reduction and recognize the GWTA as the drivers
union. Please contact us if you are interested in participating with
us in a coordinated effort to support the Brisbane and Adelaide
drivers.

We look forward to your positive reply and cooperatively working
together to make this Domino’s Drivers Solidarity Day a success here
in North America.

Yours in solidarity,
Dominos Workers Solidarity Campaign
