  • Veteran's Day Rally
    Updated On: Nov 14, 2017

    Dear Chicago Federation of Labor Affiliates/Delegates,

    More than one year after Nabisco parent-company Mondelez International finished moving 600 good-paying, middle-class jobs from the South Chicago bakery to Salinas, Mexico, the veterans who were included in the layoffs are calling on the new Mondelez CEO, Dirk Van de Put, to change its harmful business practices and invest in the future of their U.S.-based Nabisco bakeries and workers.

    Veterans’ Day Rally

    Friday, Nov. 10

    10:00 a.m. CST

    The Vietnam Veterans Fountain

    35 East Upper Wacker Drive, Chicago, IL

    In July 2015, Mondelez International announced it would invest $130 million in its plant in Salinas, Mexico, where they pay workers about $1 per hour, instead of investing the money in its iconic plant in Chicago. As a result, 600 Chicago workers, including dozens of veterans, lost their jobs beginning in March of 2016, reducing the plant to half the size of its employment.

    Please join the veterans, labor activists and community members for this rally.
