Overview

At the end of May 2021, contracts for BCTGM union-represented employees expired across three U.S. biscuit manufacturing facilities (Chicago (IL), Portland (OR) and Richmond (VA)) and three sales distribution facilities (Addison (IL), Aurora (CO) and Norcross (GA)). Our goal is to bargain in good faith with union leadership to reach new contracts that recognize the contributions of our represented employees and provide good wages and competitive benefits, while also modernizing some contract aspects which were written several decades ago to set up our U.S. employees and bakeries for long-term success. This website serves as a resource to share updates and information related to these negotiations.

New Contract Ratified by BCTGM-Represented Employees

We are pleased to announce that the tentative agreement between Mondelēz International and the BCTGM bargaining committee on new contracts covering employees at the Portland (OR), Richmond (VA) and Chicago (IL) Nabisco bakeries and Aurora (CO), Addison (IL) and Norcross (GA) sales distribution facilities has been ratified by BCTGM-represented employees.

The four-year contracts are retroactive to March 1, 2021 and include a ratification bonus for each employee, hourly wage increases each year of the contract, increased company match to 401(k) contributions, and updates to certain workplace policies. We look forward to welcoming our employees back to work as we transition back to normal operations.

“Our goal has always been to reach agreements that would provide our union-represented colleagues with good wages and competitive benefits, while also positioning our U.S. bakeries and sales distribution facilities for future growth and success,” said Glen Walter, EVP and President, North America, Mondelēz International. “We are pleased that we were able to accomplish that goal with these new contracts and that our colleagues chose to ratify them.  We have a bright future as a snacking leader here in the United States, and our employees at these bakeries and distribution sites play an important part in that future.  We look forward to welcoming back our BCTGM-represented colleagues and returning to normal production and distribution to customers and consumers.” 

The Company has been working with the BCTGM on an orderly process and timeline to bring back BCTGM-represented workers into the bakeries and sales distribution facilities and will be doing so this week. Distribution facility employees will be individually contacted with instructions on when to return, and bakery employees should visit www.Negotiations2021.com to find relevant information for their scheduled return plans.
