SUPPORT STRIKING TEAMSTERS AT DAVIS WIRE!
Posted On: May 21, 2012

Local 117 is on strike at Davis Wire.  Workers went out on an Unfair Labor Practice strike at 6am on Monday, May 21.  The company has brutally backed these workers into a corner and forced this dispute. 

There have been serious accidents at the company: severed fingers, wire punctures, and crushed bones. Despite dangerous working conditions, Davis Wire refuses to provide affordable health care for its hardworking employees.

Davis Wire has:

  • Violated federal and state law by denying breaks and working employees off the clock.
  • Threatened Union members with plant closures.
  • Illegally laid off 27 workers three days after workers took a strike vote
  • Spied on workers who stand up for their rights.
  • Unjustly terminated a Union employee and then refused to abide by an aribitrator’s decision to reinstate the worker.

LOCAL 117 MEMBERS AT DAVIS WIRE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

Support striking workers at Davis Wire!  You can:

  • Come down to the strike line at 194st & 80th Ave. S. in Kent and walk the picket line (workers are picketing 24/7)
  • Bring coffee, water, wood, or food (the healthier the better!) down to the line
  • Drive by and honk to show your support

For more information, contact Teamsters Local 117 at 206-441-4860.
