Breaking in Freeport, IL – Standing with Sensata workers in Freeport, IL, Reverend Jesse Jackson has been arrested along with other protesting Sensata workers:
This has occurred after Sensata plant management conveyed a message through Freeport Police to protestors and the public late yesterday. Management is threatening to close the plant immediately if protesting workers attempt to enter the factory to initiate negotiations with management for severance benefits. The workers have filed two unfair labor practice complaints against the company with the National Labor Relations Board in the past 24 hours.
Jackson was marching with the protesting workers to attempt negotiations with plant management. At this time, the plant remains open.
