12,000 Member SEIU Local 2028 Bans Coke Products
Local member Jeff Graves reported that he was informed by Mary Grillo, Local 2028's executive director, that the local will no longer provide Coca-Cola products at union events/meetings and will no longer sell such products at the union hall. This decision fits in with the resolution passed at SEIU's national convention resolving that SEIU "support the worldwide call to boycott Coca-Cola and work to win broad AFL-CIO support for the campaign against Killer Coke." Thank you Jeff Graves, Mary Grillo and Local 2028 for your activism on behalf of enforcing labor and human rights at Coca-Cola bottling plants in Colombia.
