On Monday, Aug. 24, NPR Chicago broadcast a special story detailing the recent announcement by Mondelēz International that it is shipping 600 union jobs — half the plant’s workforce — to Mexico. The program includes interviews with BCTGM Local 300 members at the Chicago bakery. The report also includes information on how the city worked with Mondelēz the last time the company threatened to move production outside of the United States by providing $300 million in tax breaks to complete infrastructure work at the bakery.
