Nabisco Workers Win Strong New Contract Following Month-Long Strike

Solidarity Wins Again!

September 23, 2021  

On September 15, the Bakers, Confectioners, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM) announced a new tentative agreement with Nabisco/Mondelez. This comes after over 1,000 BCTGM-represented bakers and distribution center workers struck at all five U.S. Nabisco locations. The strike, which began on August 10 in Portland, OR, began after the company demanded unacceptable concessions during bargaining, even with increased profits last year. 

On September 18, BCTGM announced that the tentative agreement was overwhelmingly ratified by the workers. The new four-year contract provides strong pay raises, improved 401(k) matching, and leaves the workers’ health care plan intact.

“This has been a long and difficult fight for our striking members, their families and our union,” said BCTGM International President Anthony Shelton. “Throughout the strike, our members displayed tremendous courage, grit and determination.

“The BCTGM’s striking members made enormous sacrifices in order to achieve a quality contract that preserves our union’s high standards for wages, hours and benefits for current and future Nabisco workers,” Shelton continued. “Their sacrifice will benefit all BCTGM members and working people around the country for years to come.”
