Stand up for the Nabisco 600

Check the label and BOYCOTT Nabisco products made in Mexico!

Mondelēz International, which makes Nabisco snacks, outsourced 600 good union jobs to Mexico, closing the largest commercial bakery in the United States. The company isn’t losing money; this move was simply to line the pockets of the CEO, Irene Rosenfeld, and other stakeholders and executives. As a result, BCTGM union workers in Chicago lost their jobs.
