IUF affiliates represent a majority of unionized Mondelēz employees around the world from Alexandria, Egypt to Chicago, Illinois, and since 1920 the organization has been instrumental in driving policy reforms and institutional changes for workers' rights and protections. Earlier this year, the IUF released this statement of global solidarity and commitment to mutual action against Mondelēz in support of BCTGM's continuing campaign against Mondelēz to oppose the closure of numerous U.S. production facilities that have resulted in the loss of many hundreds of quality jobs.
Currently, the alliance of unions is demanding investment in the future of the Company and its brands, as well as and an end to the pursuit of short-term financial gains that is driving the destruction of quality employment at the company. BCTGM also 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 into the future – after its National contract between Mondelēz International and over 2,000 of its 4,000 workers represented by the BCTGM expired on February 29, 2016.
