QUIZNOS, VENIMOS POR TI!

QUIZNOS, VENIMOS POR TI!

Se construllo el hormiguero de gente en el Valle al primer sentido de la piñata, pero no se junataron por los dulce si no para la comida gusta!

Earlier this month, a Rio Grande Valley crowd of forty circled around a huge Quiznos piñata eagerly awaiting their turn at piercing through a radiating fuzzy treat.

“QUIZNOS acts like consumers and students don’t already know that they have encapsulated treats they will inevitabley have to share” exlaimed one animated piñata smasher. The CIW, a florida-based group of campesinos who supply the sandwich corporation their tomatoes have faced brutal working conditions for decades, including stagnant sub-poverty wages, widespread labor rights violations, sexual harassment, and modern-day slavery.

As party attendees rushed to the candy upon settling on the ground—a balanced surface where Quiznos CEO’s should already be standing with Taco Bell, McDonald’s, Burger King, Subway alongside the CIW ensuring human rights for farmworkers, others shared their collected treats with peeps less fortunate in receiving their desired goodies. Quiznos executives have some quick catching up to do!


By signing the CIW’s Fair Food agreement, Quiznos is agreeing to pay one penny more per pound piece rate wage increase, a strict code of conduct, a cooperative complaint resolution system, a participatory health and safety program, and a worker-to-worker education process.

Like most ‘hormigueros,’ this army of freedom fighters will not seize to give in until Quiznos does! We won’t let the power of the big corporations intimidate us because we know that the power of the people is always stronger.
