WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) is launching a direct mail and e-mail campaign asking about a half-million American families to boycott Tyson Foods by not ordering pepperoni on their Pizza Hut pizzas.

According to a UFCW release, the mailing also asks Pizza Hut customers to contact the chain and request it make its pizzas "Tyson-free."

The group also has a Web site explaining its plight.

The dispute between the company and the workers arose in late February when Tyson demanded workers accept a complete elimination of the pension plan for all future workers, cost increases for health insurance and a wage freeze on top of a wage cut.

According to the release, the Tyson cuts are part of "a national campaign to roll back corporate greed in response to Tyson's effort to rollover striking workers at a highly profitable pepperoni plant in Jefferson, Wis."
