UFCW Members Take Action to Support Union Meatpacking Workers in Brazil

UFCW members from across the country are showing global solidarity for food processing workers in Brazil who were recently fired. Around 600 meatpackers who work for a company called Marfrig Global Foods and who are union members of the National Confederation of Workers in the Food and Allied (CNTA Afins) were fired without any merit or warning. CNTA Afins is calling on the government for an intervention in order to help the fired workers. The plant is located in the city of Alegrete, located in the Brazilian southern state of Rio Grande do Sul.
