Warning, Mark – you may not be able to stomach Oreos after reading this email.
Executives at Mondelēz, the parent company of Nabisco, are about to fire 600 people in Chicago who make Oreos and other beloved snack food products as Mondelēz moves production to a factory out of the country.
There’s no reason this has to happen. Even though Mondelēz CEO Irene Rosenfeld made more than $21 million in 2014, she still demanded the people who work at its factory in Chicago take a 60 percent pay and benefit cut. But when they didn’t agree, she decided to cut their jobs.
Sign the petition to demand Mondelēz CEO Irene Rosenfeld stop putting corporate greed over the livelihoods of the people who work for her!
By cutting these 600 good jobs, Mondelēz and Nabisco are turning their backs on all of us. Mondelēz’s outsourcing is not good for the veteran employees at the Chicago plant or their families and their community – and it certainly isn’t good for America.
To add insult to injury, CEO Irene Rosenfeld received a $6 million raise in 2014 but is asking the men and women who make her company run to take life-altering pay and benefits cuts! In fact, she’s been paid over $170 million in compensation over the last eight years. And still, the dedicated employees at the Chicago plant are being told that it’s up to them to save the company money or lose their jobs.
Please stand with the women and men who work at the Chicago Nabisco plant fighting not only for their jobs, but a fair return on their work. For us to make a difference, Mondelēz CEO Irene Rosenfeld needs to hear from as many people as possible that we expect better.
Don’t delay! Tell CEO Irene Rosenfeld that you expect more from her company.
Thanks for your dedication,
Jobs With Justice
