Just Say No to Palermo’s/Kirkland Pizza! Community and union leaders, and workers from around Wisconsin gathered Saturday 10/13/12 for an informational picket at Costco in Madison to bring awareness to the national boycott of Palermo products, and the interest of Palermo’s workers to form a union, which is supported by Voces de la Frontera and United Steelworkers. Costco’s Kirkland brand pizza is manufactured by Palermo’s. There is no boycott of Costco planned at this time, just of the Kirkland pizza products on the Costco shelves. Today in Madison, Palermo’s workers make their case in front of the Joint Legislative Audit Bureau meeting at 10am in the WI State Capitol. Photo: Leslie Amsterdam

    says you can buy it at Woodman’s, Copps, Target, Pick N Save, Hy Vee, IGA, and many others. Many supermarket store brands are actually Palermo pizzas: according to
