100,000 hits! That is really amazing! This much attention for a group of people that numbers around 165! Your story is an amazing one!
Here is another one and worth giving some time here even during our own issue of bargaining. These people are now fighting for only that - the right to bargain. This is about much more than paying more for health insurance or pensions - they already agreed on that.......this is an all out assault on American Workers rights - period.....and it IS poliical and it is CORPORATE DRIVEN. With a goal to "trickle down" the attack to the rest of the American Workforce. Don't be fooled, the only way to protect yourself is to band together.
More now than ever:
The workers at MCC Newburgh are truly an inspiration to all workers across the country. We are grateful for all of the support that we have been given from all around the country and suprised from the support we have from a few countries OUTSIDE of the United States!
With so much going on now with the economy, the world and in the political arena there was no better time for the workers here in Newburgh to make a decision to come together and have a voice. The workers of MCC Newburgh took the brave steps they needed to take to ORGANIZE!
We have a much better chance at making improvements and having the peoples opinions become part of the decision making process when we BAND TOGETHER.
....and look what has happened - we have come to the table and presented the opinions of the people to representatives of the company. We are working on a contract - together - labor and management - to hopefully start a great relationship and to work together to reach the goal of making Newburgh the best can making facility in ABINBEV.
IBEW Local 363 is PROUD to be working with the workers at MCC Newburgh and proud to be helping them put together their new contract.
We would like to thank everyone out there again for all of your support and kind words! Please stay with us, stay on our side and keep up that support.
Negotiations start up again the week of March 7th.
As always, if any workers at MCC Newburgh have any ideas or thoughts about any subject related to bargaining - please contact your reps.
Stay Solid, Stay Strong!
