Driscoll's Berry Boycott 5-7-2016
Costco and Whole Foods are a major distributor of Driscoll's Berries! Currently they are choosing to not honor the boycott that is called for by farmworkers.
Please take a minute to let the management of both stores know that you would like to see Costco and Whole Foods honor the boycott, especially if you are a Costco member or you are a shopper at Whole Foods. Ask them to respect the rights of the farm workers by suspending the sale of Driscoll's Berries!
Support farmworkers rights Boycott Driscoll's Berries!
Indigenous farmworkers in Baja California and Washington state have called for an international boycott of Driscoll's Berries and are asking for your support! These farmworkers are fighting for an end to inhumane working conditions including wages of $7.00 or less per day, illegal child labor, unsafe and insanitary housing and working conditions, denial of lunch or rest breaks, and violent repression of their efforts to organize!
The Driscoll's boycott will continue until contracts that safeguard basic rights and provide fair compensation are signed with the farmworkers independent unions.
