Mushroom workers at Pictsweet Mushrooms in Ventura,
Calif., have been trying for years to win fair pay,
benefits and, most of all, safe working conditions.
Conditions at Pictsweet in Ventura are cruel and dangerous.
Mushroom workers labor in dark and damp rooms. Floors
are slippery. Only the lights on their helmets guide
the mushroom workers. Workers have complained that
over time the lack of proper lighting has caused their
vision to deteriorate. 

Because of these conditions, workers are asking customers
to stop buying Pictsweet mushrooms. Pictsweet has lost
many major customers including Vons, Safeway and Ralphs
supermarkets which are honoring the workers' requests.

You can help. Pizza Hut is one of Pictsweet's largest
customers and has refused to do the right thing by
keeping Pictsweet mushrooms off its pizzas until Pictsweet
signs a union contract and workers win safe and healthy
jobs and better pay. 

Click on the link below now to send Pizza Hut a fax.
Tell Pizza Hut to stop buying Pictsweet mushrooms.

After you send your fax, tell your friends, family
and co-workers about this struggle for justice for
Pictsweet mushroom workers.
