Support Carwash Workers on August 19
Start: 08/19/2009 - 6:00pm
End: 08/19/2009 - 7:00pm

Join Fellow Screen Actors Guild Members, L.A. County Federation of Labor
and AFL-CIO President John Sweeney

Join your fellow Screen Actors Guild members, the L.A. County Federation of Labor, and AFL-CIO President John Sweeney in supporting the Carwash Workers Organizing Committee. This has been an ongoing campaign and SAG has been sponsoring and participating in monthly rallies in solidarity with the carwash workers since late last year. 

Carwash workers in Los Angeles are often paid too little and are forced to work in hazardous conditions. When workers have tried to unionize, their employers have responded by firing them.

Join us in solidarity with these workers to help them form a union, which will raise their standard of living and secure basic workplace protections.

When: 11 a.m. Wednesday, August 19, 2009
Where: Vermont Hand Wash
(On the corner of Vermont and Hollywood)
1666 N. Vermont Ave.
Los Angeles, CA  90027
