Madison Polymeric Rallies for a Fair Contract

Members of NEJB Local 151 at Madison Polymeric in Branford, CT rallied this week as they continue negotiating their contract. Negotiating quality and fair health insurance has become increasingly difficult with the many unknowns related to the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as “Obamacare”, which goes into effect in 2014. Workers at Madison Polymeric who manufacture protective packaging and foam inserts have been having a particularly difficult time negotiating over this issue. The show of solidarity and activism was organized to send a clear message: we deserve a fair contract. With union negotiations nation-wide becoming more and more difficult workers are demonstrating their solidarity like never before. OBB summer organizers joined the rally to support the workers in their contract negotiations.
