“More than 1,500 workers at the Tyson plant in Pasco, WA, most of them Latino, Bosnian, and Vietnamese immigrants, have been fighting to remain members of Teamsters Local 556 since early last year. In April 2004, Tyson management tried to get workers to vote out their union, but workers voted to remain union members and to enter into contract negotiations. Instead of respecting the vote, Tyson has frozen workers wages and tried to break the union again. February 9-11, the workers must vote again to stay members of their union. ”
