(en) US, California: DAAA Collective shows Solidarity with Blue Diamond Workers

Date Fri, 21 Jul 2006 20:57:51 +0300


Yesterday, collective members with Direct Action Anti-Authoritarians (DAAA)
Collective, showed solidarity with local and regional workers at Blue Diamond
Almond company. The Almond company has been involved in a very dirty anti-union
campaign, and has even racked up 20 anti-union violations.
Today with union members of the ILWU, and local activists and community members, we
went to the Almond Growers Board meeting to stand up to the President of Blue Diamond,
who sits on the Almond Growers Board. Workers handed out flyers to the whole room, and
later in the day, when the workers were not allowed to speak at the meeting, (the reason
being that they had not written proposal during the "new business" section), the workers
ended up walking out. The Modesto Bee has published an article about the action,
(http://daaa.proboards59.com/index.cgi?action=display&board=labor&thread=1153412265).

Several people have been re-hired in Sacramento, but more people still
need support. Please view the flyer on the DAAA site, and call the
main office, and demand that those fired in Sacramento be re-hired!

Solidarity!
