The Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) who have been so active in their organizing throughout Chicago this spring (see Friday and Saturday slowdown's for more info) has had a huge victory. McDonalds USA, based in Oak Brook IL, has agreed to work with the CIW and its produce suppliers to improve the wages and conditions for the tomato workers. The CIW has had a victory but still needs you to join them at their events this weekend to celebrate and move forward.
