IUE-CWA Local 84811 members in Janesville, Wis., who work at Hufcor have launched a series of videos as part of their fight to save their jobs after the company announced its plan to move production from Wisconsin to Mexico.
The workers and their allies also placed an ad in the L.A. Times last week directed at Andrew Nikou, the CEO of private equity firm OpenGate Capital which owns Hufcor. OpenGate is notorious for acquiring and then gutting companies across the country. The ad was signed by supporters including Wisconsin elected officials Senator Tammy Baldwin, Representative Mark Pocan, and Governor Tony Evers.
Watch the videos and sign the petition to tell OpenGate and Hufcor to keep jobs in Janesville at savejanesvillejobs.org.
