Video: Check the Label on Nabisco Products! (updated info)






Published on Mar 11, 2016
Check the Label is a public education campaign launched by the BCTGM to help consumers learn how to check Nabisco product labels to ensure their favorite Nabisco products are produced in America before purchasing.

Through a simple label check, together we can send a powerful message in support of American jobs and products by rejecting those made at poverty-level wages and in unregulated work conditions.



Media Advisory: BCTGM Enhances “Check the Label” Campaign Against Nabisco/Mondelēz With Release of Video



KENSINGTON, MD, March 11, 2016 - Today, the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM) released a video () in support of their recently-announced “Check the Label” campaign. The "Check the Label" campaign was launched after Nabisco/Mondelēz closed numerous U.S. production facilities costing many hundreds of American jobs, while at the same time expanding production in its facilities in Monterrey and Salinas, Mexico, where low wages and minimal regulatory standards and oversight persist.



Today’s video illustrates the steps consumers need to take to support American jobs by ensuring their favorite Nabisco products are produced in America before purchasing.
