Driscoll's Berries Boycott Continues
Independent Farm Workers Union Calls for Global Day of Action Against Driscoll's
The National Democratic Independent Farm Workers Union (SINDJA) is calling upon all sister organizations to participate in the International Global Action against the transnational corporation Driscoll's — one of the most exploitive agricultural companies in the San Quintín Valley, Baja California. Workers are demanding: freedom to unionize, a collective contract with SINDJA, no more sexual harassment, daycare centers, and fair wages.

Besides paying miserable wages, Driscoll's, and the companies which supply them berries, such as BerryMex, Moramex, Santo Domingo, Martín Reyes, Munguia, etc, deny unions free access to their employees. In contrary, all their workers that organize or affiliate with another independent union are fired. Also, workers are only hired under the condition that they are not affiliated with the Regional Confederation of Mexican Workers (CROM).

For this and many more abuses, SINDJA is inviting individuals to "shout with one united voice," on September 29.
