March 23rd marks one year since Mondelēz/Nabisco began laying off Local 300 members from the Chicago bakery and sending their jobs to Salinas, Mexico. Now, workers toiling under exploitive conditions in Mexico produce the formerly made-in-the U.S. Nabisco products that are shipped back to American consumers.
The Nabisco 600 and the Check the Label campaign has gained tremendous support from activists coast to coast. In a collective act of solidarity, we are asking BCTGM members, their families and communities to join us in marking the one-year anniversary of the Chicago layoffs with a DIGITAL DAY OF ACTION. Click on the SAVE THE DATE graphic to visit the FACEBOOK Event Page and let us know you will participate! On the morning of March 23, we will release some very exciting digital tools to send Mondelēz/Nabisco a loud, clear message that we are not going to go away regardless of how long it takes to repatriate these jobs and restore the hopes and dreams of our members, their families and the South Chicago community!
