After the layoff of 600 workers in Nabisco's Chicago plant in March 2016, BCTGM started their "Check the Label" campaign, which expanded to college campuses in November. The campaign aims to educate American consumers about the merits of rejecting Nabisco products made in Mexico to end the corporate race to the bottom that treats workers in America and in Mexico with disrespect and without regard to the financial well-being of their families and their communities.
The National contract between Nabisco's parent company, Mondelez International and over 2,000 workers represented by the BCTGM, expired on February 29, 2016. BCTGM continues to be resolute in its commitment to securing a quality contract for its members – one that is in the very best interests of all members and their families today and in the future.
