Ron Baker, Strategic Campaign Coordinator of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union will explain how 600 Nabisco workers lost their jobs in Chicago last year when Mondelez/Nabisco put profits in front of people. Join him and several other former Nabisco employees in the fight-back against corporate greed, outsourcing, and the global exploitation of working people that results. The first step is to check out this Nabisco 600 Video and like us to follow the campaign on Facebook at Nabisco 600 Workers - BCTGM. Then come and participate in this discussion and interchange with a team of laid of Nabisco workers regarding how the events unfolded in Chicago, how they and their families have been personally affected, how the fight-back has grown nationally and globally, and how you can get involved. Don't miss this unique opportunity to be a part of the solution! Learn more at fightforamericanjobs.com.
