Sodexo is one of the largest food service and facility management companies in the world, making billions every year. But they pay many of their workers just 25 cents over minimum wage and often prevent workers from forming a union. That is why thousands of Sodexo workers have decided to go on strike.
Help support them by sending a letter to Sodexo executives telling them to respect their workers by providing a decent wage and benefits and allowing their workers to organize a union if they choose to.
It is unconscionable to pay the people who make your company possible poverty level wages while your CEO and other managers make millions. You pay your workers as little as $7.50 an hour, just 25 cents above minimum wage, or around $15,000 a year for a full time workers. Your company is worth billions of dollars, you can surely pay your workers a decent wage.
It has also come to my attention that while you say you respect the rights of your employees to form a union, you often take actions to prevent workers from doing so. In particular in the Dominican Republic at the Barrick gold mine, you have been fighting workers who want to organize a union, going so far as to fire and suspend workers.
Please listen to and respect your workers. They make your company possible and they deserve a voice.
