The Food Worker Power Fund
Growing Food Factory Worker Power to Transform the System
Scroll down to learn more
Brandworkers is uniquely positioned to build a sustainable and deeply rooted foundation for food factory workers in New Jersey to achieve dignified union jobs through worker-led organizing and community building with allies. The New York metro area spans both states—worker communities are interconnected.
With Brandworkers’ expanded ability to support workers in the regional specialty food market, food factory workers can end the race to the bottom between manufacturers in NYC and North Jersey in favor of high-quality employment for all.
Without organizing across the metro region to improve working conditions, businesses can threaten to move to the area with the lowest standards.
How you can help
Help ensure that food factory workers in New Jersey will have a sustainable path to power, firmly rooted in their organizing home.
Generous individuals and organizations have since committed $450,000 to seed Brandworkers’ organizing in Northern New Jersey.
The Food Worker Power Fund needs YOUR help to contribute the final $50,000 by September 2021 to close The Food Worker Power Fund with $500,000 raised. Your donation will allow Brandworkers to hire a second organizer who can provide needed training and coordination for workers to achieve dignified union jobs through worker-led organizing.
