UPDATE: Planned Labor Demonstrations on Monday, May 1
May 01, 2017
Labor unions and organizers are planning marches, demonstrations, and rallies to occur on Monday, May 1 effecting farm labor and other industries reliant on immigrant labor.
In past years, May 1 has been a day of bringing attention to worker rights, but due to limited participation by laborers, it has not significantly impacted harvest, shipping, and production
This year’s demonstrations will be more organized and widespread due to increased focus on labor here in the US and in recent news
Markon has taken precaution by working with growers to harvest early (including Sunday) to ensure orders are covered
Potential loading delays may occur on Monday, May 1 as a result of reduced crews and personnel
Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
