We will be selling WCCNY, Green Light, and immigrant rights buttons made by members of the Workers’ Center, Zapatista coffee, t-shirts, and much more. We also need volunteers to help with set-up and hellp staffing the table. Set up will start at 10am and the fair ends at 6pm, so the we need coverage the following shifts: 10am-12pm, 12pm-2pm, 2pm-4pm, 4pm-6pm. Please email Nikeeta at nslade@workerscentercnyorg if you’re able to take a shift (it would be ideal to have 2 people per shift)! The proceeds from the sale will go to supporting our amazing worker leaders! Thanks in advance and we are going to have a great time at the fair!

Chobani Meeting Update!

The past couple of months, many of you have written messages to Chobani urging them to meet with us to talk about our MILKED report.  We are excited to report that a few weeks ago, on August. 18th, we met with representatives from Chobani and discussed our MILKED report which details the conditions that workers face on dairy farms. Worker-leaders shared powerful testimonies about the preventable deaths and injuries, wage theft, retaliation against workers for speaking out, and other pressing issues. This meeting is the beginning of what we hope is an on-going dialogue to address the systemic abuses and exploitation in the dairy industry. We thank you all for all of your support, whether it was sending messages, circulating the report, or attending the rally in front of Chobani in New York City. Thanks and we will continue to keep you all updated!
