SIGN THE PETITION TO STEER WHOLE FOODS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION:
Some time ago Molly reported on the campaign on the part of the US United Farm Workers to exert pressure on the retailer Whole Foods to cease carrying Country Natural Beef in their stores. The UFW and Country Natural Beef have been locked in a long standing dispute for over eight months now about union representation on feedlots in Oregon. So far feedlots such as Threemile Canyon Farms and Willow Creek Dairy have agreed to union representation. Beef North West is the holdout, and the UFW wants their supporters to put further pressure on this company, who produce Country Natural Beef, to settle and allow their workers human rights on the job. Whole Foods retails 60% of all Country Natural Beef sold in the USA, and to date they have refused to exert their influence on their supplier.
Help farm workers to achieve dignity on the job. To see more about this campaign and to join go to the link HERE.
