Jul 13, 2012 - Food Drive- Support Striking IAM-CAT Workers
Updated On: Apr 30, 2015
Workers at Caterpillar in Joliet have been on STRIKE Since May 1st. IAM Local 851 is running a food bank for their members. We are asking Local 21 members to support their efforts with non-perishable food or cash donations.
Donations can be made at all Local 21 Unit meetings, work locations and our Union hall until Monday July 23rd.
Please work with your stewards, E-Board members, Chief steward and Business Representative to collect donations and coordinate pick-ups.
IBEW Local 21 intends to deliver the donations to IAM workers by Friday July 27th.
To help spread the word we have created a flier for you to print and distribute to you coworkers. Download it now by clicking here.
