Rally to Support Fired Ballco Workers...

Join Ballco Workers as they call on FMC Technologies to support justice and fairness!

When: Tuesday, October 9th at 12 noon
Where: FMC Offices at 200 E. Randolph in Chicago (Aon Center)
Join us as we call on FMC Technologies to cease doing business with Ballco Manufacturing. Ballco employees have suffered for years under abusive and discriminatory conditions. When eight of their coworkers were unfairly targeted and fired on September 19, workers said “enough is enough” and walked out on a one-day protest strike. Ballco responded by firing 25 more employees. Employees have filed charges for unlawful discrimination and retaliation, and have remained on the picket line for the past two weeks. FMC Technologies is a major Ballco customer. We are calling on FMC to cease doing business with Ballco until this dispute is resolved.

For more information call Mark Meinster at (312) 829-8300, United Electrical Workers (UE)
