Solidarity Alert: USW Local 6129 Sisters and Brothers Need Our Support!

United Steelworkers Local 6129 Sisters and Brothers Need Our Support!

The workers of Silgan Containers voted to strike after contact negotiations took a downturn. The workers voted 3-1 to reject the proposed contract from management. After many weeks of negotiations, management proposed that the members pay an increased cost for their health care benefits and proposed to gut the overtime provisions of the contract.

Silgan Containers is a profitable company that makes cans for the food industry and they are asking for many more concessions that will hurt our brothers and sisters!

Please stand with USW 6129 members while they fight for a fair and decent contract that will allow them to feed their families, live in dignity and thrive as members of our communities!
