Our brothers and sisters at ILWU Local 6 need your support! Since May 4th, 42 members have been locked out of their job at Stratas Foods Inc., in south Fresno, after unanimously rejecting the company’s offer.
These warehouse workers have been working four, 12-hour shifts per week throughout the pandemic, packing, and shipping cooking oil for fast food chains and Costco. After being lowballed on wages for years, these workers decided enough was enough, and are standing their ground for a fair wage increase. Stratas Foods generates approximately $700M in annual revenue.
Sign the petition and demand Stratas Foods go back to the bargaining table and accept ILWU Local 6’s counteroffer to give these workers the fair pay they deserve!
Please also consider donating to their GoFundMe to help warehouse workers until unemployment decides if and when their benefits start.
