Today is National call in day! Please call the following number and listen to a short message, and then enter your zip code! This will put you in touch with your local congressman! (For Sensata workers it’s Don Manzullo) Please leave them a message about how important it is to extend tax cuts for the middle class and to keep our country moving forward!!!! 1-866-426-2631
How did Sensata pick and choose who they were going to give extra severance to? We are still fighting for full severance that we are owed AND deserve! Shame on Sensata for coming in this town of 26,000 and shipping these jobs to China! Please join us today for a rally outside the plant at 3pm!
Freeport Mayor George Gaulrapp has turned his back on Sensata workers and is unwilling to take the step of condemning Sensata eminent domain. This is a legal step that could help save our jobs.
Call the mayor at (815) 291-4202 and demand he stand with Sensata workers not Sensata bosses!
The Bainport Community met today and we decided that we will be taking down our Bainport encampment tomorrow, Friday, Nov 09th. As you may know, we were already staying beyond our welcome and have been trespassing since 4:01 pm Nov 3rd. We decided to comply with the Fair Board’s request because they are not who we are fighting. Sensata is, and will remain our target for a fair and full severance. We will be forming an official community organization and coalition with labor in the next few weeks. We will continue to protest Sensata through the bitter end, but we will also turn our sights on other bad employers, bad politicians, and bad actors in our community.
Our Bainport encampment was one tactic, stay tuned for many more…
