What did UPS deliver two weeks ago? Pink slips. To 250 employees.

UPS fired a longtime union activist in Maspeth, NY, without the fair hearing he was entitled to. When word got out, 250 other drivers walked off the job in solidarity.

Now UPS is retaliating. They sent a termination notice to all 250 drivers who participated in the protest. In other words, "You're fired."

I wrote a petition that now has over 11,000 signatures to t
ell UPS that firing their workers for protesting is wrong. Click here to add your name to the petition now.

The well-being of these drivers and their families hangs in the balance because they spoke out against a company that violated workers' rights. UPS shouldn't ship pink slips to their drivers out of retaliation. What should have been a routine disciplinary matter became an attack on hundreds of working families.

Today, the drivers are committed to negotiating a fair resolution -- why can't UPS do the same and take back the notices of termination?

What can brown do for you? Certainly not this.

Tell UPS that firing 250 innocent drivers is the wrong turn for their employees, their brand, and most importantly, their customers.

In Solidarity,

Time To Start Treating Guns Like Abortions

It's time we start regulating guns like we regulate abortions.

Because it just makes sense that we regulate these individual rights in the same way.

Because the Supreme Court, in the Heller case, concluded that there is an individual right to own firearms found in the Second Amendment - just like they ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is an individual right to have an abortion found in the Fourth Amendment.
