Saturday, January 31
Support the Stella D'Oro Workers Company attempts to destroy their union The 135 workers of Stella D'Oro, the biscuit producers, most of whom are Latina women and immigrants from Asia and Africa are confronting a cold winter on the streets. They have been on strike since August 13, 2008. The company, Brynwood Partners, has refused to negotiate and is demanding that the workers return to work without a contract in an attempt to destroy their union.

BOYCOTT STELLA D'ORO PRODUCTS
The workers have gone on strike because the company wants to: Slash wages by as much as 25% Make health insurance unaffordable by imposing crushing premiums Eliminate holidays, vacations, sick pay & current pension Eliminate extra pay for working Saturdays

The strikers are represented by the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM) Local 50. They are on the picket line everyday!

Place: In front of Stella D'Oro plant on 237th Street & Broadway (#1 train to 238th St)
