    ASARCO Workers: Resource Fair & Info Town Hall for Strikers & Families @ IBEW Hall

    More than 1700 members from eight labor unions are on strike against ASARCO and Grupo Mexico. The Pima Area Labor Federation (PALF) is hosting Resource Fairs and Town Halls for union brothers and sisters who are on strike.

    Striking workers can get information, food for their families, and other assistance.

    Resource Fair… will be open from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.

    Informational Meetings… will be from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. and from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. on October 22 and October 24. The event closes at 4 p.m. on Friday October 25.

    Public Support for Strikers… People who want to support the strikers and their families can donate food, gift cards to union grocery stores (like Safeway or Fry’s), or cash through PALF. Nonparishable food donations can be dropped off the IBEW Hall, 570 N. Tucson Blvd.

    You can donate checks or cash to help the strikers and their families by mailing or delivering your donation to the PALF Office at 877 S. Alvernon Way, Tucson 85711. Make checks payable to PALF Community Services.

    These workers haven’t had a raise in 10 years. Under ASARCO/Grupo Mexico’s best and final offer some workers still wouldn’t get a raise.

    Walk the Line! You can also walk the picket lines with the strikers and other supporters. Watch the PALF Facebook page
