Event Type Press Conference
Join us for a lunch-time press conference and action at Costco (7100 N. Abby, near River Park) in solidarity with farmworker organizers from Washington State. Members of the independent farmworker union Familias Unidas will join us, describing the abuses they have endured, and urging us to support their movement by boycotting Driscoll's/Sakuma Brothers. We are targeting Costco as one of the largest retailers of Driscoll's products. We demand that they stop purchasing berries from Driscoll's until Driscoll's and its grower/suppliers agree to participate in collective bargaining and sign a contract with Familias Unidas.

Les invito a una conferencia de prensa y demonstracion al medio dia enfrente del Costco (7100 N. Abby, cerca al River Park), para mostrar solidaridad con los organizadores jornaleros del estado de Washington. Los socios del sindicato independiente de jornaleros agrícolas, Familas Unidas, nos van a juntar, y van a describir los abusos que han sufrido y como podamos apoyarles en su movimiento por participando en el boicot de Driscoll's/Sakuma. Estamos enfocando en las tiendas Costco por que ellos son uno de los compradores mas grandes de productos de Driscoll's. Estamos exigiendo que el Costo pare de comprar las bayas de Driscoll's y sus proveedores agrícolas en Mexico y los EEUU hasta que Driscoll's firme un contracto con Familas Unidas usando el proceso de negociación colectivo.
