In support of the Teamsters Union on Saturday December 15 at 12 noon UH Students Against Sweatshops will be passing out flyers at the Galleria Footlocker store. It’s on the lower level near the food court. The Galleria is at 5015 Westheimer. Call the Footlocker store for directions, 713.621.7268.
In 2006 six lawsuits were filed against Footlocker stores alleging race or gender discrimination or sexual harassment. One of their suppliers, New Era Cap is under investigation by the EEOC for racial discrimination on charges brought by workers in its Alabama factory. The mostly black and female workers have been passed over for promotion and are paid poverty level wages.
