The Hawkeye Labor Council AFL-CIO will hold an informational picket at the Penford plant in Cedar Rapids Iowa @ 4:00 PM on Monday July 27th. The picket will take place in front of the main office on the side walk at 1001, 1st Street SW Cedar Rapids Iowa 52404.
There is public parking all around this area. If you are attending the picket do not park on any Penford property or in parking lots. This will be a peaceful picket to raise awareness that our Brothers and Sisters of BCTGM 100G are coming to the end of a hard negotiation and that the company has used intimidation tactics over the past few weeks.
We want to send the message that we support the workers at Penford and we as a community would like to see fair and productive negotiations.
Please join your brothers and sisters in the labor movement to show our support. This should only take an hour of your time Signs/pickets will be provided .
