Day of Action: BCTGM Nabisco Boycott is today!

UAW - Wed, 05/17/2017 - 11:30
Click to share on Facebook

We stand with BCTGM Nabisco/Mondel?z 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 (Mondel?z) 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. Mondel?z 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.

In order for the union members to generate $46 million in annual savings, they would have to take a wage and benefit cut of $22 to $29 per hour every year. The company announced it will move nine product lines to the Salinas bakery, which will result in the loss of 600 good paying Chicago jobs. The BCTGM continues to fight the company’s decision to export the union jobs.

The UAW has announced its support of the BCTGM International Union’s boycott of Mexican-made Nabisco products as a result of the company’s decision to move hundreds of Illinois jobs to a plant in Mexico.

BCTGM, which represents some 4,000 workers of Mondel?z International, the parent company of Nabisco, launched the Check the Label campaign as a means to push back against the company’s ongoing outsourcing of American jobs to plants in Salinas and Monterrey, Mexico. The campaign is calling on consumers to check the label of Nabisco products and only buy snacks that are made in the U.S. as a means to “support middle-class American jobs.”

What can you do?

What can you as a UAW member do to help support our brothers and sisters at BCTGM fighting for good-paying jobs?

A Tremendous Loss in Alabama

Bobbie Billingsley Worked to Help Others

Renee Seals bought a small metal cross to put on the door at UAW Local 112 when her friend Bobbie Billingsley suddenly died in a car accident. The 18-inch cross helped let members know that there wouldn’t be a union meeting that night.

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.

But something didn’t seem right about having the cross in her house. Billingsley, a former paint shop worker fired by Mercedes for her pro-union activities, put her heart and soul into the organizing drive.

“She carried a cross for the UAW,” Seals said, remembering her friend who worked at the union hall as a temporary organizer. “That was her cause. I’m going to put it back at the hall.”

Billingsley died April 7 as she pulled into the union hall parking lot. She had requested part of the previous day off to deal with a recent family tragedy. Dedicated to her cause, she returned the next day – her day off – to add more pro-union co-workers to the database when the accident happened.

“She loved her family. She loved the Lord and she loved the UAW,” Seals said.

Seals didn’t know Billingsley when she worked for Mercedes and became friends after she decided to help in the drive to bring UAW representation to the plant. She discovered that Billingsley had a strong personality and wasn’t easily intimidated, even when the company came after her.

To those who knew and loved her, how she lived her life will be how she will be remembered.

“We all loved her so much and we miss her more and more every day,” said her daughter, Claudia. “She was successful in every project that she was involved in. That’s how we know the union will make it into Mercedes-Benz. She fought so hard so that everyone in those plants would be treated equally and we’re praying that her work makes a difference.”

For George Jones, president of Local 112, Billingsley made a difference every day.

“I’ve never really met anyone who was that passionate about helping out,” Jones said. “She was very passionate and very compassionate in respect to others.”

Billingsley left behind four children, Christopher, Kimberly, Claudia, and Kenya; and four grandchildren, Desire and Christopher, Jr. and Anthony and Kaisen McKenzie.

“We would like to add our condolences to the family of Bobbie Billingsley, whose passion to serve her co-workers was unmatched,” said UAW Secretary-Treasurer Gary Casteel, who directs the union’s Transnational Department. “The example she set at Local 112 is one of hard work, dedication and total commitment to her co-workers. She will be sorely missed.”

Seals said she will honor her union sister’s mission by continuing to press until Mercedes workers in Alabama have the same rights to union representation as elsewhere in the world.

“When Bobbie passed away, it’s like, ‘Oh my God, we can’t stop now.”

Glass Plant Workers Detail the Dangers at Fuyao

UAW - Tue, 05/16/2017 - 11:00

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. He suffers from diminished lung capacity that, according to his doctor, was caused by working with isocyanate glues and primers, powerful chemicals which are known to cause asthma and other breathing problems.

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.

James Martin

“I know if the UAW had been there and had a contract, they would have had my back,” Martin said at a recent town hall at Local 696 in nearby Dayton with his co-workers, UAW members and community supporters. Fuyao workers want to organize their own union with the UAW to fix the many health and safety issues at the massive former General Motors plant and have a voice on the job.

Martin began work in February 2015. On his first day, management at the plant, which is the world’s largest auto glass manufacturing facility, held a safety class in which half of it was spent learning about some of the dangerous substances he and his co-workers would be working with. They discussed the importance of Safety Data Sheets (SDS) that explain in detail about the chemicals and their potential hazards.

In mid-March, after his first two hours of exposure to chemicals in the manufacturing process, Martin and some of his co-workers began to experience headaches, lightheadedness, nausea, and a burning sensation in their eyes and throats.

“We mentioned it to our supervisor and he ignored our complaints,” Martin said.

At the end of their shift, the workers checked the containers of chemicals they were working with to see if they could get some of the warnings off the cans.

“We could not,” he recalled. “They were printed in Chinese.”

From mid-March until mid-June, Martin and his co-workers repeatedly asked for respirators and the Safety Data Sheets.

“All we were told by our supervisors was, ‘No need.’”

What really angered Martin and other workers was when they were shown a training video that was filmed in China. When the video got to the part of the manufacturing process that he works at, the Chinese workers were all wearing respirators. Martin says they were told by the company that they use different chemicals in the United States.

Martin doesn’t want what happened to him to happen to other workers. Without a union to have a voice in the workplace, Martin fears for the health and safety of his former co-workers.

“Fuyao must understand and accept that employee safety must always be their primary concern,” Martin said.

The town hall came just days after the National Council for Occupational Safety and Health listed Fuyao as among the “Dirty Dozen” most dangerous employers in the United States. It noted that employees were frequently working around broken glass and sharp edges without proper protection, and are exposed to the risk of amputation.

In March, Fuyao, OSHA and four workers represented by the UAW reached an agreement that requires the company to make major safety improvements to the plant, including addressing serious issues regarding machine safety – such as workers who enter machines to make repairs without proper safeguards and the lack of equipment that prevents workers from getting caught in machinery. But other health and safety issues remain. For instance, OSHA also is investigating possible safety violations alleged to have caused serious respiratory problems, cuts from glass shards, unguarded machines, and exposure to dangerous levels of furnace heat. In February, workers filed charges with OSHA detailing the incidents, including workers using dangerous adhesives without proper breathing protection.

At the town hall, worker after worker told the audience of about 200 of the many problems in the plant. Larry Yates told of safety issues that go unaddressed and inconsistency in safety

Larry Yates

rules. Yates filed an OSHA complaint after being assigned to enter a furnace filled with shards of broken glass to make repairs while half of the furnace was still operating at 650 degrees Fahrenheit. He also spoke about a co-worker who was fired two days after sustaining more than 100 stitches due to a workplace accident.

When workers saw that a few people fighting alone wasn’t enough to make Fuyao address their concerns about health and safety or other issues, they started joining together to form their union.

Teodore “Rick” Searcy

Teodore “Rick” Searcy told the audience he would like his son to have the chance to go to college, but that dream won’t happen if he and his co-workers don’t have a voice on the job.

“What we want is for Fuyao to listen to us,” Searcy said, his voice rising. “The only way they are going to listen to us is if we get a contract so we can have a seat at the bargaining table and have a voice in some of the decisions they are making here because they are playing with our lives. They are playing with our future. They are playing with our children and we’re not going to take it anymore!”

Those in attendance gave Searcy a standing ovation.

UAW Region 2B Director Ken Lortz told Fuyao workers that the union will stand behind them in their battle to improve their lives on the job.

“There’s no reason why Fuyao can’t provide the good jobs and the safe jobs that Dayton and Fuyao workers deserve,” Lortz said. “And there’s no one who knows better how to fix the problems at Fuyao than the workers who are doing the work. Yet Fuyao refuses to listen to its workers.”

Since workers began the drive to have a collective say in their workplace, the Chinese auto glassmaker has raised wages $2 an hour. But wages and health and safety are not the only

Lisa Connolly

issues that workers want to address. Lisa Connolly said the attendance policy allows for five paid days off, but can only be used at the company’s discretion.

“In my opinion, the policy is flawed,” Connolly said. “It is set up for failure.”

Several area public officials and community members told the workers that Fuyao needs to step up by stepping back from its anti-union posture. The Rev. Dr. Rockney Carter, senior pastor at the Zion Baptist Church and president of Leaders for Equality and Action in Dayton, said workers at Fuyao want to work in a place that is sensitive to their needs not only as employees, but as people.

“The concern for real is how people are being mistreated,” Carter said. “It’s a moral issue.”

Ohio House of Representatives Minority Leader Fred Strahorn; Montgomery County Clerk of Courts Gregory A. Brush; Mark Owens, Montgomery County Democratic Party chairperson, and clerk of court for the Dayton Municipal Courts; and John Agenbroad, mayor, City of Springboro, were among the many community members who addressed the workers.

Several representatives of UAW locals from Ohio, Indiana and Michigan attended to show their support for Fuyao workers. Jack Castleman, president of UAW Local 3059 in Evansville, Indiana, represents workers at the Pittsburgh Glass Works (PGW). Workers there organized 10 years ago and are now on their third contract. Gains made in Evansville and at a PGW plant in Crestline, Ohio, could be undone by Fuyao’s low wages and subpar working conditions.

Castleman said PGW didn’t want a union and initially fought them “tooth and nail.”

Their most recent contract, however, took just 12 days to resolve and was approved by 72 percent of the membership. Since they organized, they’ve made great strides in health and safety, including the formation of a joint company-union health and safety committee.

“It’s manned on both sides. It meets every month,” Castleman said. “We get things done in our plant, safety-wise, and both sides benefit from it. It’s worked, it’s flourished and we’re proud of it.”

But he visited with Fuyao workers recently and was appalled by some of the stories about dangerous working conditions at the plant.

“I couldn’t believe those kinds of working conditions existed in this country,” he said.

Local 3059 will be there to help them change their workplace for the better, he added.

“We’re behind you. If you need us for anything, you holler. We’re here.”
