Burger King & tomato workers in Florida, USA

Burger King & concerns regarding working conditions of tomato workers in Florida, USA

In 2008, the Florida-based Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) launched a petition campaign calling on Burger King to "Work with the CIW to establish and enforce a human rights-based code of conduct, including zero tolerance for forced labor, to ensure fair and safe working conditions" on the farms that supply Burger King with tomatoes, and to help secure a living wage for the workers.  See:

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Burger King to respond.  In response, Burger King provided this statement [DOC].
