"The Teamsters have supported the fight to end child labor in the cocoa industry for over a decade," said Tracey Thompson, Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 117. "Unfor-tunately, it is not surprising that Whole Foods has turned a blind eye to the rogue conduct of its suppliers, after all Whole Foods is also unwilling to hold is supplier in Seattle, UNFI, accountable for violating workers' rights."
