Save Jobs at the Chicago Nabisco Plant
Mondelez, the maker of Nabisco brands products, intends to eliminate more than 600 good paying jobs on the Southside of Chicago and send these jobs to Salinas, Mexico. For more than 60 years, the South Kedzie Street Bakery made cookies and crackers enjoyed by families in our area and across the country.
By making the decision to send production to Salinas, Mexico, Nabisco is eliminating hundreds of middle class jobs in this heavily African-American and Hispanic community in southwestern Chicago.
Mondelez plans to send these jobs to Mexico and then to bring the products produced there back to the U.S. for sale in the very communities where the laid-off American workers reside.

The only way to stop companies like Mondelēz from outsource good American jobs is by making a choice to buy American-made products. When you are at the store, flip the product over to see where your Nabisco products come from. If they are made in America, take them home and enjoy! If they are made outside the United States, put it back and tell your store manager to only stock American-made products. For more information on this program, click here.
