Take Action to Support Oak Harbor Strikers

December 19, 2008: The federal bailout money was supposed to get our economy back on track. So why is it going to pay for union-busting at Oak Harbor Freight?

Local 81 picket line in Portland, Ore.The federal government is giving $2.5 billion to KeyBank as part of the Wall Street bailout. KeyBank is using some of that money to underwrite Oak Harbor.

Since September, over 600 Teamsters have been on strike against the regional carrier in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.

Oak Harbor Teamsters haven’t had a contract since October 2007. Management has canceled healthcare for Teamster retirees and refused to bargain with our union in good faith.

This past week, Teamster members and Jobs with Justice protested at KeyBank branches in Portland, Seattle, Indianapolis, Detroit, Buffalo, and Cleveland.

The GAP and J.C. Penney have already canceled their business with Oak Harbor, thanks to action by our union, students, and community groups.

Tell KeyBank to stop using your taxpayer money to finance union-busting at Oak Harbor. Click here to take action.
