International Vice President Robert Oakley reports the successful conclusion to an organizing campaign at the Kraft-Nabisco warehouse in Richmond, Va. and the depot in Chesapeake, Va.
The campaign was conducted by Local 358 ( Richmond, VA) and the International Union. The campaign focused on the driver sales employees.
Oakley notes that Local 358 has made a concentrated effort to focus more time and effort in assisting non-union workers and their families, thereby growing their local union.
The campaign, which was concluded by an NLRB election, was run by Local 358 Financial Secretary Ted Constable and President Ray Daniels and assisted by International Representative & Organizer Jimmy Condran. Also aiding in the organizing effort were International Representatives & Organizers John Price and Cesar Calderon.
Constable and Daniels credited the organizing committee for their important contributions. Condran reported that he was very impressed by the local union’s ability to integrate their computer technology skills into the campaign.
Congratulations and welcome to our newest members who work for Kraft-Nabisco in Virginia!
