No Contracts, No Snacks: Nabisco Workers on Strike In Five States

They don/t care about frontline workers. They only care about the almighty dollar. Were tired of getting stepped on and treated like trash. Weve had enough.

"Rusty Lewis, Nabisco worker

The workers who bake and ship Oreos, Chips Ahoy, and Ritz crackers have gone on strike in 5 states. If Nabisco can rake in billions of dollars in corporate profits, says Darlene, they can afford to treat their workers with dignity and respect. Nabisco shut down food processing facilities in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, and Atlanta, Georgia, two of its last five remaining food processing facilities in the United States. Those plants had been around for generations, and 1,000 workers lost union jobs. Workers in the remaining facilities are concerned that their jobs will soon be headed to Mexico, where two other Nabisco plants have opened in recent years and where the horribly exploited Mexican workers are paid less than $1/hr. "Theres a constant threat of if you dont agree to concessions, we'll leave," but while Nabiscos parent company, multinational confectionery corporation Mondelez International says get back the workers fightback and are striking for better working conditions, an end to foreign outsourcing, and the withdrawal of a company plan that would scrap the companys current guaranteed overtime pay system.
