U.S. truck drivers who haul cargo for popular fashion and footwear retailers are being subjected to workplace segregation and inhumane conditions, and they need your help to put a stop to it.
The corporation that handles cargo for brands such as Guess? and Under Armour is conducting business practices in Southern California that smack of Jim Crow. Just as African-Americans were forced to use separate, inferior public restrooms and drinking fountains, Toll Group, a profitable global transportation and logistics powerhouse, bars its truck drivers from using the clean and stocked indoor facilities. These 75 men and women must share a trio of foul-smelling, unsanitary port-a-potties that lack running water outside in the company yard.
The 59 Latino-American drivers who recently attempted to deliver their own petition to management were rebuffed. So now they are asking supporters and consumers like you to sign onto the solidarity petition to a top company executive started by local residents and community allies. Out with the outhouses, in with justice!
