Boycott Sakuma Berries | Support Local Farmworkers!
The workers at Sakuma Berry Farms north of Seattle are on strike – the fourth strike against the company this season.
The company has gone back on its promises of wage increases, and fired Ramon Torres, the leader of the workers’ organization, Familias Unidas para la Justicia.
Boycott picketlines have gone up at the company’s processing plant, and in front of stores in Seattle.
Now the company may be moving security guards into the labor camp where the strikers live. The workers need your help now:
Call Sakuma Farms, and tell them:
Sit down and negotiate with the workers.
Rehire Ramon Torres.
Stop harassing workers in the labor camp.
Guarantee the jobs of the striking workers, this season and next.
Sakuma sells a lot of strawberries for Haagen Dasz ice cream, which is owned by Nestle Foods. Call Nestle, and tell them they are in violation of their principles of social responsibility. They need to tell Sakuma Farms the same thing – sit down with the workers.
Sakuma Farms berries are sold under the Driscoll label. Driscoll needs to do the same thing – to tell Sakuma Farms to sit down and talk.
Workers need your help NOW! If you can only make one call, please make this one.

If you can make three more calls, call Nestle, Haagen Dasz and Driscoll.

For background information on this labor struggle:
Last week, indigenous and Latin@ workers at Sakuma Brothers Farms held two sit down strikes, achieving small wage increases. But they want more – they want a contract that can’t be reneged. Sakuma Farms fired Ramon Torres, the president of the farmworkers’ organization, the very next day. Since then Sakuma workers have been on strike.
This morning, Ryan Sakuma came to labor camp 2 and informed the farmworkers that those who were planning to strike today needed to pack up their belongings from the labor camp and come to the Sakuma Field office to pick up their severance paycheck. Read more
