Canvass workers at Sisters’ Camelot in Minneapolis have been on strike over the organization’s failure to recognize and bargain with the IWW Sisters’ Camelot Canvass Union. Shortly after the strike began, one of the striking workers was fired. The union is demanding immediate recognition, and the reinstatement of the fired worker.
Sisters’ Camelot, is organized as a non-profit collective, and declares itself to be devoted to the values of “community autonomy, human rights, global solidarity, equality, economic and social justice, anti-authoritarianism, and sustainabilty.” The organization’s anti-union conduct is inconsistent with these values.
The union has issued a public Statement of Support for the strikers. To co-sign, send an email to SistersCamelotCanvassUnion @ gmail . com, giving the name and any title or affiliation by which you’d like to be identified.
