Fired workers Bill Lawhorn and Russ Teegardin were met by co-workers when they returned to work on December 4 at the Consolidated Biscuit Company plant in McComb, Ohio.
A rally was held outside the plant when Lawhorn and Teegardin reported to work for the first time since they were fired and led out of the facility for their support of the BCTGM six years ago.
“The return to work for Lawhorn and Teegardin symbolizes a new beginning for all CBC workers,” reflects BCTGM International Representative John Price. “After a six year wait, workers here are excited because they will be able to vote for the BCTGM under the protection of the NLRB and Federal Courts.”
On August 14, 121 members of BCTGM Local 50 went on strike at the Stella D’Oro bakery located in Bronx, N.Y. The strike continues.
