Nabisco Bakers On Strike

Solidarity Rally and Boycott Brigade

Saturday, September 4

10am – Noon

100 NE Columbia

Gather at 10, rally at 10:30, “boycott brigades” carpool to grocery stores at 11am

Rally will feature music plus speakers – politicians, strikers, unions and community leaders.

Boycott Brigades, small teams of agitators, will travel to assigned supermarkets to leaflet customers and distribute “Don’t Buy Nabisco! Respect the Strike!” stickers.

Organized by Portland Democratic Socialists of America and Portland Jobs with Justice portlanddsalabor@gmail.com

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.
