Striking Mott's Workers Speak Out (w/Video)

Mott's, a subsidiary of Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, enjoyed a record $555 million in profits last year. But Mott's isn't sharing that success with the workers who made it possible. Those workers, their families, and their New York communities have suffered from the company's attempt to reduce hourly wages and force drastic health care cuts on workers. It's just not right.

The Williamson plant is the only plant that produces Mott's applesauce, including high margin single serve packs, and these are good, middle-class jobs that make the community strong. Why does Mott's seem to want to destroy middle-class jobs?

Those workers deserve better. They deserve to share in Mott's extraordinary success under Dr. Pepper Snapple.

Watch the video of Mott's workers below for more on the injustice these workers face.
