Stella D’Oro strikers’ rally– January 31

Kate Pastor reported in the Riverdale Press

Workers have been asking people to steer clear of the cookies ever since all 136 union members went on strike on Aug. 13. They walked out because they say factory owners Brynwood Partners handed them an unfair contract that cut some salaries, reduced benefits and eliminated sick days and some holidays.

But only now, six months after they traded in work for shifts on a 24-hour picket line, has the call for a boycott reached a full-throttled cry.

Concerned citizens have formed the Committee in Support of the Stella D’oro workers and have been gathering since December at the Church of the Mediator in Kingsbridge to discuss the strike, and organized Saturday’s event.
