Transcript Houston Area NOW intends to eliminate pregnancy discrimination and we need your help. The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a pregnancy rights case during its next term. NOW is confident that the high court will support the EEOC guidelines. We expect the court to render its decision between December and February. What will happen when we win in the Supreme Court? Naturally we'll celebrate. No longer will women be economically penalized by their employers because of pregnancy. But what about the countless women who were illegally denied benefits prior to the Supreme Court decision? Will they get back pay? That depends on you. If you act now, tens of thousands of Houston women will be entitled to millions of dollars of back pay. If you fail to act, employers will have ripped off women again. Houston Area NOW has voted to file charges of discrimination with the EEOC against every major employer in our area, challenging their pregnancy provisions. We need at least one charge against each major employer by at least one female employee. Any current female employee of childbearing age can file the charge. She does not need to have been pregnant herself. Although we welcome charges against any employer with more than fifteen employees, the following employers represent our top priority. Each has more than one thousand employees in the local area: American General Insurance Co. Armco Steel Corp. Atlantic Richfield Co. Brown & Root, Inc. Cameron Co. Cameron Iron Works Champion Paper Co., Inc. Dow Chemical Co. Dresser Industries Exxon Company First City National Bank Foley's General Electric Globe Stores, Inc. Houston Belt and Terminal Railway Houston Chronicle Publishing Co. Houston Contracting Co. Houston Lighting & Power Co. Houston Natural Gas Corp. Houston Post Lockheed Electronic Co. Lomas & Nettleton Co. Marathon Manufacturing Co. Montgomery Ward & Co. National Convenience Stores, Inc. Parker Brothers & Co., Inc. J.C. Penney Co. Petro-Tex Chemical Corp. Prudential Insurance Co. Reed Tool Co. Rice Food Markets, Inc. Sakowitz, Inc. Schlumberger Well Services Sears, Roebuck & Co. Shell Oil Co. Southern Pacific Transportation Co. Southwestern Bell Telephone Co. Tenneco, Inc.
