May Day Strike
Pedal People will be closed Monday, May 1st. If you have a Monday pickup, your pickup will be delayed until Tuesday (unless your carrier informs you differently). We will also not answer phone calls or respond to emails on that day.
We are closing on May Day in support of national strikes to demand dignity, respect and permanent protection for immigrant workers. Approximately 11 million people in this country are at risk of arrest and deportation by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). We respect the human right to migrate and we resist legitimized discrimination based on someone's legal status, or where they were born.
The strikes this May Day are supported by unions and human rights groups across the country. Workers will use their economic power, through strikes and boycotts, to show how critical undocumented workers are to this country. We recognize, too, that immigrants contribute much more to our society than their labor.
We encourage any other businesses to strike on May Day as well. Social researchers say that when 3.5% of the population is committed to a struggle for social change, the change happens. 3.5% of the US population is about 11 million. However, since many undocumented workers can't risk striking, those workers who can take the risk are encouraged to do so in solidarity.
There will be events in Northampton and Springfield for those who are able to participate.
