Buffalo Mountain Co-op Stands with Migrant Justice

Dear Buffalo Mountain Co-op Members,
 
Vermont dairy worker’s have an important campaign underway calling for a national day of action on June 20th to urge Ben & Jerry’s to stand for farm worker’s rights in their supply chain by joining a new worker’s rights initiative–The Milk with Dignity Program
 
Dairy farm worker’s in Vermont work 60-80 hrs a week; 40% earn less than Vt minimum wage and don’t have a day off; 30% have had a work place injury or illness; and 20% face wage theft.  But there’s hope! VT dairy workers need you solidarity! 
 
Here’s what you can do:
  1. Sign on to the #MilkwithDignity organizational letter of support.
  2. Email your networks about June 20th day of action (Sample language below).
  3. Organize an action on June 20th! Click here for the Action Toolkit: http://bit.ly/J20ActionTools

Vision of the Co-op’s Future

What will the Co-op look like in 10 years?

One of the main jobs of the board is to plan for the future of the co-op. We have spent much of the last year working on visions of what the co-op could look like in the future and what that would mean for our store and community. Now, we need your help.

 After a six-month long look at where the coop is and has been the Visioning Committee has three possible futures: Stay-Put, Expansion and Back to Our Roots.

 What is your vision?

 Do you see us in a larger space and selling more mainstream foods and servicing a larger portion of the community? Do you see us staying where we are and working on improving our current store? Do you see us going back to our roots and selling mostly bulk and local food?

 Should we                   EXPAND?                STAY PUT? BACK TO OUR ROOTS?

 These are complicated issues and not all mutually exclusive. But having an overall direction from the membership about what you want is important for the board.
