Solidarity Callout - Domino's Pizza Drivers Dispute
The Workers Solidarity Alliance (WSA), 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.
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.</td><td><img title="@news stands in solidarity with the organizing under the GTWA, IWA, WSA, and everything else awesome" src="http://anarchistnews.org/files/pictures/2012/pizza.jpg"></td></tr></tabl...
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:
The Australian friends are asking that folks engage in 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 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

together to make this Domino's Drivers Solidarity Day a success here
in North America.
Yours in solidarity,
