Solidarity Alert: Stand with Nabisco Workers in Fair Lawn

Our BCTGM brothers and sisters are waging a long-term battle against corporate greed at Mondelez, the parent company of Nabisco. Last year, executives instituted job cuts at a facility in Chicago, sending hundreds of middle class American jobs to Salinas, Mexico.

The New Jersey State AFL-CIO will participate in a press conference next week with BCTGM members, elected officials, and a delegation of interdenominational religious leaders from Interfaith Worker Justice to call into question the greed-based business model of this company.

Date:

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

Time:

4:00 p.m.

Place:

Albanian American Cultural Center
90 Riverdale Road
Riverdale, NJ 07457

The solidarity and support of our labor, community, faith allies and elected officials will send a strong message to the company and business community and we urge affiliates to join us for this event. This type of greed affects us all, and we must fight back together.

This press conference will launch one of seven city investigations by the faith-based community into the Nabisco/Mondelez business model of shipping jobs to low wage jobs for production and sending the produced products back to the US for sale while laying off American workers. Fair Lawn NJ has a Nabisco production facility that is in long term danger of losing good paying middle class jobs as a result of this ongoing Mondelez/Nabisco business model.

The investigation will focus on community and worker impact, morale and ethical issues that arise from such a business model. Other cities that will be visited include, Richmond, VA; Atlanta, GA; Chicago, IL; Portland, OR; and Salinas, Mexico. For questions regarding the press conference or investigation, please contact BCTGM Organizer Nate Zeff at (240) 460-6164.
