North Carolina USA law makes it legal to violate farmworkers' human rights

Earlier this week we asked for messages urging the Governor of the US state of North Carolina to veto Farm Bill S615, a bill sponsored by farmers elected to the General Assembly. The bill was designed to stop farmworkers from joining the state’s only agricultural union, the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC) and winning improved working conditions through union agreements. Governor Cooper signed the bill into law on July 13.

The IUF-affiliated FLOC has vowed to challenge the law and will continue organizing to improving the working and living conditions of farmworkers in the state. The union has warmly thanked the IUF and all those who responded to our appeal for messages to the Governor urging him to veto the bill. E-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots.
