Nabisco Workers in Richmond, Va. on Strike
BCTGM International President Anthony Shelton issued the following statement in support of members of BCTGM Local 358 (Richmond, Va.) who are on strike against Nabisco in Richmond:
“Earlier today, members of Local 358 at the Nabisco Bakery in Richmond joined their Brothers and Sisters in Portland, Ore. and Aurora, Col. in striking Nabisco. In all three locations, our courageous members are speaking with one clear, strong voice. They are telling Nabisco to put an end to the outsourcing of jobs to Mexico and get off the ridiculous demand for contract concessions at a time when the company is making record profits.
BCTGM members across this Union and across the country are coming together in solidarity with our striking Brothers and Sisters to take a stand against Nabisco’s shameful and destructive disregard for workers, their families and the communities in which they live.”
