On February 15, 2017, nearly 400 Mondelez workers in Dunedin, New Zealand and their union E Tu were informed that the historic Cadbury factory in their hometown would be closing with production offshored to other sites. Mondelez is a corporation driven by financial short-termism and aggressive cost cutting, which is resulting in the destruction of quality jobs. Consequently, Mondelez workers across the world have known only sell-offs, closures, outsourcing and permanent restructuring ripping jobs out of communities.

But, the fight is not over to keep the Dunedin factory open. E Tu, its members and Dunedin urgently need your solidarity and support.

Please send messages of solidarity to Sarah Meyer (sarah.meyer@iuf.org) at the IUF Secretariat, which will then be forwarded to E Tu. Let Dunedin and its Mondelez Cadbury workers know that they are not alone and that they are part of an international effort to #savequalityjobs at Mondelez.
