Whatcom Peace & Justice Center Solidarity Statement

July 13, 2013

The Whatcom Peace & Justice Center wishes to convey our support to the striking workers from Sakuma Brothers farms. We shared details of the strike and the workers demands and grievances at the Friday Night Vigil and there was great interest. We will be sharing details and media coverage with our membership over the weekend until the strike has ended and the demands are met. We believe all workers should have access to a fair and living wage for their labor, that adequate sick and recovery time and breaks are essential for a decent workplace, and that workers should be free from intimidation by their supervisors. Solidarity!
