You may have heard the good news that Familias Unidas por la Justicia won the union election vote up at Sakuma Bros berry farm in Washington. This is an historic victory! This has led to some talk that the Driscoll’s boycott is over when, in fact, the Sakuma boycott has been called off. This link will take you to a translation of a press release from SINDJA, the union representing berry pickers in San Quintin, Mexico. More than 80,000 farmworkers went on strike there a year ago to call for a living wage and union recognition and their struggle continues.
