Pinnacle Foods Workers Authorized To Strike In Iowa

Jan. 8, 2013

Roughly 400 Pinnacle Foods Workers in Fort Madison, Iowa, who are members of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) voted on Sunday, Jan. 6 to authorize a strike to protest the company’s plan to eliminate their pension plan. The Pinnacle Foods plant in Fort Madison manufactures canned food products, including Vienna sausages, Armour brand corned beef hash, beef stew and chili.

“In a volatile financial environment, Pinnacle Foods workers in Fort Madison are simply trying to protect middle class jobs and their retirement benefits after working hard to make their company profitable,” said UFCW Local 617 President Darin Boatman, in a prepared statement. “I hope this strike vote sends a strong message to the company and moves the negotiation process to a successful conclusion.”
