Worker Solidarity!
Union Garden Work Party
with UNITE HERE 2850, Planting Justice, and MG!
at the Home of Isidoro Saravia-Ramos

Facebook notice.

Isidoro singing a song of struggle on the land we’ll be cultivating!
Join UNITE HERE 2850, Planting Justice, and Movement Generation in planting a “Union Garden” at the home of UNITE HERE 2850 member and Casino San Pablo dishwasher, Isidoro Saravia-Ramos.

Despite the fact that the Casino brings in over $200 million in revenue, the average Casino worker only earns $9.60/hour and hasn’t received a raise in 4 years. Workers are forced to work in a smoke-filled environment and most don’t receive health insurance. While workers continue their struggle for fairness inside the casino, workers and neighbors are joining together to build community and reclaim our own health and labor.

In inviting folks to his home to plant a garden, Isidoro said: “I am very excited to build a garden with my fellow unions members, my family, and my community. By working together on the land, we will harvest justice.”

Bring work clothes, sturdy shoes, a water bottle, and any food you want to share (to supplement the carne asada / BBQ we’ll do for lunch).

Please RSVP to gavin@plantingjustice.org.
