Sakuma Farmworkers Rally

1401 Broadway
Harvard Market, Seattle, WA 98122

Farmworkers at Sakuma Brothers Farms in Burlington are taking action to demand fair treatment, decent working conditions and the right to their union. The workers say Sakuma Brothers has responded with grueling captive audience meetings to intimidate them, and by seeking out and disciplining workers who stand up for their union, Famlias Unidas por la Justicia (United Families for Justice).

Part of the workers’ strategy is asking that we boycott Sakuma Brothers berries, a boycott endorsed by the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO. All of labor needs to send a clear message to these brave workers, and to the employers. Please join us to say loud and clear that an injury to one is an injury to all — we have Familias Unidas workers’ backs!
