The Food Chain Workers Alliance supports labour organizing along the supply chain

“Worker-led organizing is the way forward to a food system that is not exploitative, and nourishes all people,” says Elizabeth Walle, development coordinator at the Food Chain Workers Alliance.

The Food Chain Workers Alliance is a coalition of unions and labour organizations across Canada and the United States, with members working in different sectors along the food chain, including harvesting, processing, restaurant and retail.

The Alliance’s mission is “to build a more sustainable food system that respects workers’ rights, based on the principles of social, environmental and racial justice, in which everyone has access to healthy and affordable food,” according to their website.

To achieve this mission, they are engaging workers across industries and across borders, through advocacy, education, and by organizing actions.
