BCTGM Director of Organization John Price joined with officers and organizers from BCTGM Local Union 22 (Minneapolis) in a series of meetings with employees of Franklin Street Bakery who are in the midst of an organizing drive to join the BCTGM.

The campaign, which began in 2016, has received tremendous support from the Minneapolis/St. Paul community including the Minnesota State AFL-CIO, local community groups, town council members, and even the NFL Players Association.IMG_1609

The owners of Franklin Street Bakery continue to deny its workers the right to freely organize and the National Labor Relations Board recently found the company had violated federal labor law on 50 separate occasions over the course of the campaign. According to Price, the workers at Franklin Street Bakery remain “committed and unwavering in their desire” to join BCTGM Local 22.
