A Valentine's Day Gift for Hannaford Supermarkets
Dairy workers recently paid a visit to a Hannaford Supermarket in St. Albans, VT. Workers arrived with a Valentine's Day message: "Hannaford, don't break our hearts: Join Milk with Dignity!"
After speaking with the store manager and asking him to pass the message to company president Mike Vail, workers left a gift: dozens of heart-shaped helium balloons with Milk with Dignity stickers, a reminder for customers of the company's unfulfilled responsibility to the farmworkers behind Hannaford-brand milk.
Watch this short, inspirational video from the day's action. Then send an email telling Hannaford President Mike Vail that it's time to join Milk with Dignity!
While we were at Hannaford leaving our Valentine's Day gift, even more workers on dairy farms around the state were taking pictures of themselves and posting them to the company's facebook page. Underneath each of Hannaford's facebook posts, you can see dozens of pictures of farmworkers demanding Milk with Dignity.
Check out Hannaford's facebook page and the amazing farmworker comments under each post. Then leave your own comment to support human rights and dignity for the workers in Hannaford's dairy supply chain.
