The UIC Graduate Employees Organization (Local 6297, IFT/AFT, AFL-CIO) stands in solidarity with fast food workers across the nation who have called for a strike on December 4, 2014 to demand higher wages and the right to unionize. Along with home health care workers, airport workers, and Walmart workers, fast food workers are organizing to demand fair wages and better working conditions from wealthy corporations that reap substantial profits off their backs.
We are in solidarity with all workers who stand up and fight for a living wage. We stand with fast food workers as they go on strike, and call for everyone to support them by not crossing the picket line on December 4th.
To Support the fast food workers yourself, call on fast food chains to allow employees to strike for better pay and treatment without retaliation by signing this SEIU petition: http://action.seiu.org/page/s/support-striking-fast-food-workers
