About 650 members of USW Local 13-243 in Beaumont, Texas, reported for work and were turned away by ExxonMobil on May 1, 2021, when the company's unfair labor practice lockout began.
The company has insisted on concessions in bargaining that will undermine safety, job security, and seniority rights and place the community at risk to accomplish these goals.
Although they are on the front lines fighting for a fair contract, in this fight against corporate greed, they need our support now more than ever.
The company has cut off their paychecks, but let’s show ExxonMobil that they can never cut off the solidarity and support of the labor movement in Texas.
We will be raising funds to donate to the members of USW 13-243, gathering toys/food, and taking it all to Beaumont during the week of Christmas
