GOLDEN FARM EMPLOYEES ADDRESS THE COMMUNITY'S QUESTIONS
UPDATE: The rally scheduled for Saturday has been cancelled because of the blizzard.
This video is posted on the blog Kensington Community Supporting Justice For Golden Farm Workers and on YouTube.
In this video, four Golden Farm employees answer the questions that have been most frequently asked about their particular situation and the boycott. They're determined to win a fair union contract as well as get the work hours reinstated that they lost when the store owner cut them on August 17, 2012. The union and the store owner will negotiate again on February 12th.
A picket line operates Mondays through Fridays, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 7:00 p.m. This Saturday, a rally with the Brooklyn Green Party and the Brooklyn Food Coalition will take place outside of the store at 1:00 p.m.
Golden Farm is at 329 Church Avenue, on the northwest corner of E. 4th Street, in Kensington.
