Monday, March 12 will be Day 2 of this year's major action: farmworkers' historic Freedom Fast, the largest and most significant mobilization in the Wendy's Boycott to date.
Support the farmworker and ally fasters, who will be converged outside of the Manhattan offices of Wendy's Board Chair and major shareholder, Nelson Peltz, by calling Mr. Peltz's offices and amplifying farmworkers' message: Wendy's must take responsibility to end sexual violence in Wendy's supply chain by joining the Fair Food Program immediately.
Then, if you're in New York, join us for the culminating Time's Up Wendy's March on Thursday, March 15 at 5:00pm!
Here’s how to call in:
1. Call Trian Partners in New York, New York at (212) 451-3000.
2. Ask if you can leave a message for Mr. Nelson Peltz, Trian Partners CEO and Wendy's Board Chair regarding Wendy's tomato purchasing policies.
3. You'll likely be directed to Mr. Peltz's assistant. Once you get someone on the line, give your statement. Feel free to offer your own personal comments, or use the script provided.
4. Let us know how it went using the form below!
“Hi, my name is _______ and I’m calling to leave a message for Mr. Nelson Peltz in support of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. This morning when you came to work, you witnessed dozens of farmworkers and their allies from all around the country converged for a five-day Freedom Fast outside of Trian Partners. They are demanding that Mr. Peltz do his part to end sexual violence in Wendy's supply chain. It is imperative that Wendy's use its purchasing power to support the CIW's Fair Food Program and its groundbreaking human rights protections rather than continue to finance the notoriously abusive Mexican produce industry. I'm aware that farmworker women have requested to meet with Mr. Peltz to discuss this issue and that he has yet to respond to them. This Thursday, thousands are preparing to march to Trian Partners to amplify the Wendy's Boycott. I urge Mr. Peltz to bring Wendy's into the Program immediately.
Thank you for relaying this message.”
