Mott’s 100% Juice, 180% Greed

Mott’s is in the money.

Their apple sauce and juice products are everywhere. Market share has grown. Their parent company earned $555 million in profits last year and their stock is up a whopping 180 percent since March 2009!1

So Mott’s should be rewarding its workers, right? Perhaps with a raise?

Apparently not. Like a playground bully, Mott’s management just can’t get enough.

They’re not just keeping all those extra profits to themselves. They’re actually trying to slash wages by as much as $2.50 per hour for employees at Mott’s Williamson, NY, facility. And they’re even trying to take away the workers’ pension plan!

Mott’s workers are in the fight of their lives this week, and they desperately need our help.

Tell Mott’s CEO: Your workers are what makes your company successful. And you can’t get away with screwing them over. Not on our watch!

According to the head of the union that represents the Mott’s workers:

They are looking to take money out of the pockets of workers not because they feel they need to, but because they feel that they can get away with it and that workers will have no choice but to accept their offer.

Mott’s management has spent millions to build its wholesome public image, and they’re counting on the media and consumers to miss the story. They think no one’s looking. With every letter from someone like you, they’ll know we’re watching their every move.

Tell Mott’s we’re watching – workers deserve more than bullying and disrespect!

Thanks for all you do to defend the rights of workers across America.

Sincerely,

Manny, Liz, Doug F., and the American Rights at Work team

Rochester NY is an example of what the “Great Recession” has done to America. But it’s an example of how regular people can fight back with the successful strike of Mott’s workers against a proposed pay cut.
