Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our Service & Solidarity Spotlight series, we'll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
Workers at Milk-Bone's plant in Buffalo, New York, are on strike after rejecting a tentative agreement. The 40 maintenance and repair workers are represented by Machinists (IAM) Lodge 330. The workers include mechanics, electricians, oilers and pipe fitters, and they went on strike early Monday after overwhelmingly rejecting a tentative three-year deal. They are seeking 20% increases in pay over the three years.
