Foster Farms Poultry Workers Go on Strike

October 26, 2005|From Associated Press

Hundreds of northern San Joaquin Valley poultry plant workers went on strike, accusing Foster Farms of unfair labor practices.

Independent Workers of the San Joaquin Valley, a small union that represents the plant's 2,400 workers, claims the company has illegally harassed, demoted and suspended employees over the years.

The union has filed several complaints with the National Labor Relations Board that are still pending.

For now, the company is prepared to keep the plant running.
