Entering week four of a massive strike, involving thousands of workers in five cities – Portland, Denver, Richmond, Chicago, and Atlanta – the bakers of Portland’s Nabisco plant (BCTGM 364) are holding the line against a small group of strike-breakers attempting to restart production of Chips Ahoy and other snacks. Fighting the huge, profitable corporation – Nabisco/Mondelez – and their demands to takeaway overtime pay, health insurance, pensions, and to move production to Mexico, the strikers, many of whom have decades working at the plant, are in good spirits and holding strong with growing community support.

This past Martin Luther King Jr. Day, WEA raised the Black Lives Matter Flag in front of the WEA building in Federal Way. Displaying the BLM flag is part of a Black Lives Matter resolution passed by the WEA Board last November. Black History month starts in February, the first week of which is Black Lives Matter in School Week.
