The IUF is issuing an initiative of a Fair Deal For Dairy Workers(FDFDW) to demand that their rights as workers are respected. In the dairy industry we want to stop employers abusing workers’ rights and driving down wages and working conditions in a competitive race to the bottom.
The purpose of a FDFDW is to increase union density and union power within the dairy sector. The principles are common to all and a rallying point for organizing and activity in the dairy sector. They support our organizing drives for new work sites, to increase density in existing organized sites and also as a statement of what we have fought for and will defend.
