Make “Darigreed” listen to workers.
Workers will hand petition in on Friday!
Dairy workers at the Ruby Ridge dairy, which provides milk for the Darigold label are going through hell and need your help. Workers have repeatedly tried to appeal to Darigold about the reported abuses workers who labor to produce their product face, but Darigold remains silent.
Help us up the pressure. Workers say that more than a third of them have been fired after they dared asked to have a union. They’re suing the dairy for wage and hour violations and even assault. According to workers, the dairy owner, supported by multi-million dollar loan from a major lender, carries a rifle in his truck and has threatened workers. According to former employee Miguel Cuevas, the owner told Cuevas, "This rifle is for those people with the union."
On Friday, January 27, Ruby Ridge workers are going to Darigold's headquarters to deliver thousands of petition signatures. Ruby Ridge workers will be joined by UFW supporters, including dozens from the Decolonize/Occupy Seattle movement as they deliver the petitions. While most farm workers aren’t in the urban occupy actions, the fight they are in is the same fight against corporate greed that has led to the occupy movement. They are part of the 99%.
If you are in Seattle, please join us. If not, join us virtually by signing the petition today. To sign the petition fill in the information in the right-hand column and click the grey "submit form" button. To really put the pressure on Darigold, we need to have as many names as possible on the petition by the time workers turn it in. So far we have more than 18,000 signatures. Please take a monent right now and sign the petition and help us get to 20,000. Si Se Puede!
