LABOR DAY 2005 PILGRIMAGE FOR JUSTICE
JOIN THE FARM WORKERS AND OTHER LABOR UNION WORKERS TO HONOR WORKING PEOPLE OF THE VALLEY THIS LABOR DAY, 2005.
- START LOCATION: McAllen Archer Park, 100 North Main, just north of Business 83.
- START TIME: 8:00 AM, Monday, Sept. 5, 2005
- ENDING AT: Shrine of Our Lady of San Juan, Arrival Time: 11:00 AM, in time for a religious service that will start shortly after our arrival.
Bring your rosaries and your banners of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Sacred Heart of Jesus and St. Joseph the Worker. This is a pilgrimage to pray for justice for all working people.
All workers should have a voice at work so that they are able to secure better wages and benefits such as health insurance and pensions for themselves and their families. Farm Workers in California who work for Gallo Brothers, as well as, the Brownsville Catholic Church Workers should have a voice. Catholic Popes and Bishops have endorsed the right of all workers to form a union. Brownsville Bishop Raymundo Peña, however, is fighting against church workers who want union representation.
Bishop Raymundo Peña, Father Louis Brum, and the Catholic Church should be leading the way in all of these struggles by recognizing the rights of church workers to unionize—they should be setting examples for the Gallo Brothers in California and for all employers.
