Solidarity Collection for BCTGM

Brothers, Sisters, and Kin,

Union members at Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers’ Local 3-G at Kellogg’s have now been on strike for over 4 weeks. With three other sister locals here in the US they have 1,400 members total.  In our state we have 325 in Battle Creek on strike. BCTGM has offered 5 Ways to Support the #KelloggStrike

Unions have a history of coming together to support each other during hard times. When the entertainment industry was completely shut down, the Kent Ionia Labor Council arranged generous holiday meals for IATSE Local 26 members. They saw how we were struggling and made an effort to ease the burden. Now it is our turn to aid our union kin. IATSE Local 26 is collecting the following requested items to donate to BCTGM Local 3G members, for their union hall in Battle Creek, and as supplies for the picket lines. The members have spoken and told us what they need.

Canned Goods
Peanut Butter
