BCTGM 3G PICKET LINE• 425 Porter Street, Battle Creek, MI 49014
Join the Southwest Michigan Democratic Socialists of America (SWMIDSA) and other DSA chapters from across the state for a Day of Solidarity with BCTGM! We will be joining workers from BCTGM Local 3G on the picket, on Saturday December 11 between 12pm and 8pm.
After workers “overwhelmingly voted” against the latest contract proposal, Kellogg’s have began to “hire permanent replacement employees in positions vacated by striking workers.” It is vital we show solidarity to these workers.
From the BCTGM:
For more than a year throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Kellogg workers around the country have been working long, hard hours, day in and day out, to produce Kellogg ready-to-eat cereals for American families.
Kellogg’s response to these loyal, hardworking employees has been to demand these workers give up quality health care, retirement benefits, and holiday and vacation pay. The company continues to threaten to send additional jobs to Mexico if workers do not accept outrageous proposals that take away protections that workers have had for decades.
Kellogg is making these demands as they rake in record profits, without regard for the well-being of the hardworking men and women who make the products that have created the company’s massive profits.
