September 15, 2012 north american Day of Solidarity with Aussie Dominos Pizza Drivers.
The Workers Solidarity Alliance (WSA), in solidarity with the Australian General Transport Workers Association and the Anarcho-Syndicalist Federation-IWA, is appealing to you and your members to support the delivery drivers employed by Domino's Pizza Enterprises in Australia.
The Domino's drivers have been engaged in a dispute with management since 9th of April. The key issue in this struggle has been an overnight 19% wage reduction. Meanwhile, the drivers have been sold out by their current union, the SDA, which has done nothing to fight the cuts. The GTWA and the ASF-IWA are calling for an International Day of Solidarity with the Domino's Drivers on Saturday, September 15, 2012.
The aim of the Day is to alert Domino's management that workers and members of the community in North America and elsewhere stand in solidarity with the Australian delivery drivers in their struggle against the wage cut and in support of their right to organize under the banner of the General Transport Workers Association (GTWA). The GWTA Facebook page can be viewed here:
The Australian friends are asking that folks engage in informational picketing, informational leafleting and other peaceful activities aimed at informing local management and workers about the Australian dispute. It is hoped that the local stores will report to corporate headquarters about the informational activities and this would put pressure on the company.
The goal is informational actions with the main point to have Domino's restore the 19% wage reduction and recognize the GWTA as the drivers union. Please contact us if you are interested in participating with us in a coordinated effort to support the Brisbane and Adelaide drivers.

We look forward to your positive reply and cooperatively working together to make this Domino's Drivers Solidarity Day a success here in North America.
Yours in solidarity,
Workers Solidarity Alliance
