"The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. ”

ONE HOUR FOR WORKERS JUSTICE "If Not Now WHEN"
This is an attack on all workers. A profitable company wanting to replace middle-income jobs with casual,part-time workers. Injustice to One is Injustice to All. A company that received PILOT for our city and county guarantee middle-income wages and benefits. Ignoring a Master Agreement it has with BCTGM local unions representing cereal workers at four plants: Memphis, TN; Battle Creek, Michigan; Omaha, Nebraska; and Lancaster, PA.
It has been 78 days since Kellogg Company locked out its Memphis workers. It is time for the community to stand with the members and families of BCTGM Local 252G and demand that Kellogg open the doors and bargain in good faith. Over 200 working men and women no longer can support their families.
