Over two hundred members of UFCW Local 700 work at the Plumrose plant in Elkhart, which is owned by JBS. They – like other food packing and processing workers – have been working throughout a global crisis and continuing to ensure that people in our community have access to the food they need.
Members of UFCW Local 700 are not receiving the same hourly pay increases as other JBS workers across the country. This must be corrected immediately. See the letter President Joe Chorpenning sent to company leadership about increasing pay for workers at Plumrose.
