Bakery workers, who walked off the job on Tuesday, were joined by members of other unions, including the AFL-CIO on Saturday. They want a better contract amid the fear their jobs will be moved out of the country.

Mondelez International, the company that owns Nabisco, said they are disappointed in the decision to go on strike.

In a statement, they said “their goal has been and continues to be to bargain in good faith with the union’s leadership across our US bakeries and sales distribution facilities.”
