BOYCOTT Mexican-made NABISCO Products

In July 2015, Nabisco announced it had chosen to invest an additional $130 million in its new $400 million plant in Salinas, Mexico, instead of investing that money in its iconic plant in Chicago. As a result, 600 workers in Chicago will lose their jobs. An entire community will be devastated. Nabisco products made in Mexico will be sent back to the United States for American consumers.

By making the decision to send production to Salinas, Mexico, Nabisco is eliminating hundreds of middle

class jobs in this heavily African American and Hispanic community in southwestern Chicago

TruStone Informational Picket

Today, November 6 , 2015, O.P.E.I.U. Local 12 along with it's members and members from the community held an informational picket at TruStone Financial Credit Union in Burnsville, MN. Trustone recently closed its Union branch in Apple Valley and relocated the branch to Burnsville, MN, opening it as non-Union. This comes after TruStone pulled the same stunt in Golden Valley, MN. TruStone closed that Union branch, relocated it down the street and opened it non-Union. O.P.E.I.U. Local 12 filed a Unfair Labor Practice charge against TruStone for its anti-Union behavior and tactics. The National Labor Relations Board has found merit to the charge.

O.P.E.I.U. Local 12 and the community hopes that TruStone will stop its attack on Union workers and do the right thing. O.P.E.I.U. Local 12 with the help of its members and the community will continue to put pressure on TruStone to keep good paying Union jobs in the community that it serves.
