A coalition of organizations in Massachusetts delivered a letter to the Phillips Norelco headquarters in Andover, MA, letting the company know that it is not living up to its own standards for sub-contractors. The groups include Massachusetts Jobs With Justice, American Friends Service Committee/Project Voice and the Immigrant Workers Center Collaborative, which includes Brazilian Immigrant Center(BIC), Brazilian Women’s Group (BWG), Centro Comunitario de Trabajadores (CCT), The Chelsea Collaborative (TCC), Chinese Progressive Association (CPA), Fuerza Laboral (FL), Massachusetts Coalition for Occupational Safety and Health Worker Center (MassCOSH), and the Metrowest Worker Center/Casa do Trabalhador (MWC).
The letter is similar to a letter that was delivered several weeks before to the Norelco factory in Roselle, IL, alerting Norelco to the abuses taking place at Staffing Network with is providing workers to the Norelco plant. The letter, which asked for a meeting with which asks for a meeting with Philips Electronics North America CEO Gregory M. Sebasky, went unanswered so our friends in Massachusetts helped out by delivering a letter directly to corporate headquarters in Andover, MA.
