Manufacturing jobs go temp

Over a hundred workers at a manufacturing plant in Cicero are being replaced by temporary labor, according to Chicago Workers Collaborative.

They were abruptly laid off with a severance package of two weeks’ pay – including workers who had over 20 years on the job – when packaging material manufacturer  Innerpac was bought out.  Jobs are being shifted to a plant in Hillside, where temporary staffing agencies will supply at  least some of the workforce.

They’ll be protesting at the Innerpac plant, 1942 S. Laramie in Cicero, Thursday, February 24 at 2 p.m., demanding a fair severance package and an end to temporary labor in Cicero.
