Solidarity with the Lear Workers of Argentina
Help us promote this campaign to raise funds for the more than 60 families laid-off by Lear Corp in Argentina. The struggle for their reinstatement has being going on for more than 100 days! They need your support.
In June of this year, more than 200 workers at the Lear auto parts plant in Buenos Aires, Argentina were illegally sacked by the American corporation. This action was taken without the company initiating bankruptcy proceedings as required by Argentine law. In fact, Lear reported over $16 billion in global sales last year!
But the workers have been fighting back and demanding their jobs for more than 100 days. The workers have won many reinstatements, but 60 workers still remain jobless. In their courageous struggle, the workers have suffered heavy repression by the police and attacks by bureaucrats of their own union.
The working class of Argentina needs your help! Please show your solidarity for the sacked workers of Lear who are struggling for their jobs and their families, by making a donation today of any amount you can. Thank you!
