Driscoll's is the worlds leading supplier of berries! They have worked hard to maintain a caring image! ("We are honored to work with the amazing people that make Driscoll's possible, from farm workers out in the field to our farmers and employee's") But the farm workers out in the fields tell us a different story, one of poverty-level wages, inadequate housing, sexual harassment, and retaliation against workers who organize. The people who pick berries for Driscoll's in the San Quintin Valley of Baja California are calling for a boycott of the company's products untill the growers agree to negotiate a contract with the workers union ( SINDJU ). Please show your solidarity with these brave workers by spreading the word about the Driscoll's berry boycott!
You can contact Driscoll's 831 763-3259 - Costco 425 313-6364 - Whole Foods 510 428-7400
