WW12-19-17 IAM 1584 Henkel Bay Point Strike For Health And Safety Wins Battle With Union Busters https://soundcloud.com/workweek-radio/ww12-19-17-iam-1584-henkel-bay-point-strike-for-health-safety-wins-battle WorkWeek Radio interviews a IAM 1584 operator Chris Fajardo at Henkel Engineering who is on strike for proper health and safety conditions and human rights on the job. Also interviewed is Andrea Gorman, Secretary-Treasurer of IAM local 1584. The workers were forced out on strike in Bay Point California on October 16, 2017 after demanding real health and safety protections on the job. After the death of a temporary worker 26-year-old David Eleidjian who was a former marine, the company which is owned by a German based multi-national was fined $200,00 by Cal-OSHA for the death but the serious health and safety conditions continued unabated. These workers make adhesives for plane companies like Boeing. The company was trying to break their strike by spending millions of dollars bringing in a company called Strom Engineering. This professional strike breaking company specialty is breaking strikes by bringing in scabs or replacement workers. They were involved in replacing 7500 mechanics when Northwest Airlines mechanics went on strike. That strike was broken by these tactics. The CEO of Henkel, Hans Van Bylen made $7,030,273.25 and the company is unionized throughout Europe. Unions in Europe including Henkel units urged the company to end it's strike breaking and protect the health and safety of the US workers at Bay Point. On December 19, 2017 the same day as this program the IAM 1584 workers voted to accept a new contract that provided real health and safety protections and increased benefits and conditions for the workers.
