At 12:00 pm yesterday, November 2, 2016, the courageous members of IUE CWA went on strike at Momentive Performance Materials in Waterford, NY. These workers made the difficult decision to strike because they are committed to preserving good solid jobs here in our communities. They are fighting for a fair and equitable contract. The company’s “Last Best Final Offer” would drastically raise workers’ health care costs and eliminate all retirement benefits for future retirees.
Further, the potential unskilled replacement workers the company is hiring from out of state, to do the work of the over 700 highly trained members of IUE CWA puts the plant, the products produced at the plant, and the safety of the community at risk.
