On Wednesday, January 27, join the Fair Food Nation for a call-in day to the offices of Nelson Peltz, Wendy’s Chairman and major shareholder, to let him know it is past time that he bring the final fast-food holdout to join the Fair Food Program! In addition to being Wendy’s Chairman, Peltz is the CEO of Trian Partners investment firm, the restaurant's largest shareholder. Combined, Trian and Peltz hold close to a quarter of Wendy's shares, exerting considerable sway in the company’s decision-making.
Peltz has rejected farmworkers’ and consumers’ calls to bring Wendy’s to join the Fair Food Program even after a three-year consumer campaign, a burgeoning student boycott, over 200 faxes sent directly to Peltz from T’ruah rabbis and a march to Trian's offices in New York City this past November. This March 3rd, hundreds of farmworkers from Immokalee and their consumer allies will march on Trian offices again for the first action of the CIW’s Workers’ Voice Tour! With the kickoff just weeks away, let’s remind Peltz that the calls for justice will not stop until Wendy’s has joined the Fair Food Program.
Below are the call-in details and a suggested script for your call on January 27th. After you’ve called, please email organize@allianceforfairfood to let us know how it went!
Call-in Details: (212)-451-3000
Hi, my name is __________and I would like to leave a message for Nelson Peltz.
As an ally of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, I want to remind Mr. Peltz that it is time to take responsibility for farmworkers’ human rights in Wendy’s supply chain, and bring them to join the Fair Food Program.
After a three-year long campaign and several attempts to reach Mr. Peltz, we want to let him know that we will continue until Wendy’s joins the Fair Food Program. This March, CIW will be embarking on the Workers’ Voice Tour to let Wendy’s know that they must respect workers’ voices -- and the first stop will be a march outside of your New York City offices.
Thank you for relaying this message.
