Today: Call Hannaford to Demand Milk with Dignity!
Posted Wed, 12/01/2021 - 9:28pm
End-of-day update: Over 275 calls made to Hannaford!
Farmworkers need your support today in their fight for rights and dignity. Hannaford Supermarkets has been ignoring the workers milking cows to produce their store-brand milk. Dairy workers labor long hours in dangerous conditions for little pay and lack basic protections – all while Hannaford has made record profits during the pandemic.
Today, December 2nd, we are asking our supporters around the country to flood Hannaford with messages. Call Hannaford's President Mike Vail to tell him to treat farmworkers fairly and join Milk with Dignity!
Our call-in actions have generated over 1,000 calls to the Hannaford President's office. The pressure from these actions has forced the company to issue public statements in response, making commitments to clean up their supply chain and ensure fair treatment for workers. Until now, however, these commitments have not been backed up by action, and Hannaford has yet to take any steps to stamp out abuses on the farms producing their store-brand milk.
Let's keep the pressure on by jamming their phone lines and filling their mailboxes. Hannaford President Mike Vail needs to hear loud and clear that his customers expect accountability and demand action!
