We are about one month into our petition drive and we are looking to close the petition at the end of August.  Our intention is
to deliver printed petitions to Jim Fitterling, DowDuPont CEO sometime in September.  We are indeed hoping for many, many
more signatures from around the globe, especially in cities/countries in which DowDuPont is located.

As mentioned before, we are hoping that everyone can do their part in sharing the link and information in any manner
possible to get co-workers, members, family, friends and community to sign.

Jim Fitterling, DowDuPont CEO (along with the corporation) is well aware of our petition drive.  It would be great to be able to
present thousands of signatures to him come September.

Please use this link:  
http://usw.to/dowdupontpetition which gets you to the online petition which is in 4 different languages.

The DowDuPont North American Labor Council appreciates any and all support from within North America and around the
world from all of our partners in labor.

I will continue to provide monthly updates.  Feel free to let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you.

In solidarity,

Kent Holsing

Chairperson-DowDuPont North American Labor Council
