March 23 marks the one year anniversary of the higher ups at Nabisco/Mondelēz starting their layoffs at the Oreo factory in Chicago; a facility that had been supporting good jobs since 1953. The last Oreo there rolled off the line in July and production moved to Salinas, Mexico. Now, the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers (BCTGM) union, with the support of the AFL-CIO and their National Good Jobs campaign, is launching a Digital Day of Action.
In the end, 600 well-paid workers in Chicago lost their jobs last year and were replaced by much cheaper, outsourced labor.
See the flyer below for ways to participate in the Digital Day of Action and support good jobs in the U.S.
