1-Star Review Against Farm Worker Abuse

Support FLOC’s boycott of Reynolds American VUSE e-cigarettes by leaving a 1-STAR REVIEW of the convenience stores that have not stopped selling the products that are making Reynolds rich while farmworkers continue to face abuse within the Reynolds supply chain. Together, let’s leave 100 1-STAR REVIEWS to end farm worker abuse! IMPORTANT: Please let us know how in a comment below how many reviews you posted (and where!) so that we can keep a tally.

Keep in mind that this campaign isn’t ultimately about the convenience stores – this is all about REYNOLDS AMERICAN TOBACCO. In other words, we are not boycotting these convenience stores – but by demanding the attention of these stores who have the power to take VUSE off their shelves, we are adding to the mounting pressure from as many angles as possible to get REYNOLDS to guarantee fair treatment of the workers who add to their wealth.

“Farm workers of FLOC are asking [Circle K] to take Reynolds American e-cig VUSE off of their shelves. FLOC has sent multiple letters and phone calls to [Circle K]’s corporate office with no response. VUSE is a product of Reynolds Tobacco and I am boycotting VUSE until Reynolds American guarantees the rights of farm workers within their supply chain. Farm workers deserve better – therefore, I am leaving a 1-star rating until [Circle K] decides to take VUSE off of their shelves.”
