Empire Kosher Members Sign Postcards Opposing National Chicken Council's Line Speed Petition!
Updated On: Dec 05, 2017
(12/05/2017) - Today UFCW Local 1776 visited Empire Kosher to encourage members to sign postcards opposing the National Chicken Council's petition to exempt certain poultry facilities from line speed regulations. We must oppose this petition to protect our workers! Federal statistics show that animal slaughtering and processing facilities are the 6th most dangerous places for severe injuries. Raising line speeds or exempting certain poultry facilities is dangerous for Local 1776 members! We collected over 100 postcards today opposing the National Chicken Council's harmful petition. Today was a great showing of solidarity as we stand with poultry workers all across the country! When we fight together, we win!
