 Retiree Health Insurance termination is on hold

We stand with BCTGM Nabisco/Mondelez workers rallying outside the company’s shareholders meeting today. Support union workers, fight for family-sustaining jobs, only buy AMERICAN-made Nabisco snacks!

In July 2015, Nabisco (Mondelez) announced it had decided to invest $130 million in a plant in Salinas, Mexico, instead of investing it in its iconic Southside Chicago Nabisco bakery. Mondelez called on the workers, represented by the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers (BCTGM) International Union, to come up with $46 million in annual savings (in perpetuity) at the Chicago facility for the company, or it would take the $130 million planned investment to its Salinas, Mexico bakery.

Seals, a quality team member at the Vance, Alabama, Mercedes-Benz plant and a trustee of the local, brought the cross home with her to honor her friend who worked hard in the ongoing drive to bring UAW representation to the facility.

Town Hall Shows Unity, Community Support

James Martin is on temporary total disability because of the time he spent working at the Fuyao Glass plant in Moraine, Ohio.

Martin’s life has been drastically changed by the fast-growing Chinese company’s inattention to worker health and safety. He knows he would likely still be working if he was represented by the UAW.

We are rerunning this story from last year's May-June Solidarity magazine for Mother's Day this year.

While many courses have two or three so-called signature holes that are worthy of brochure status, every hole at Black Lake Golf Club could easily be on the front cover of a magazine promoting the course. That’s one reason it was named Golf Digest’s “100 Greatest Public Courses in America.”
