Whirlpool Closing a Plant - (2/22/2010)

Whirlpool is closing a refrigerator manufacturing plant in Evansville, Indiana, putting more than 1,100 people out of work.

Even worse, Whirlpool will continue to produce these refrigerators, but not in Evansville and not anywhere else in America. They are planning to manufacture them in Mexico, where weaker labor and environmental laws make them "cheaper" for Whirlpool to produce.

This is outrageous and unacceptable, especially in light of Whirlpool's profitability and the $19 million in stimulus money Whirlpool recently received from the federal government. Tell Whirlpool: Those are OUR economic recovery funds, not Mexico's!

We're outraged. So we're joining with our friends from the AFL-CIO to protest Whirlpool's decisions and demand good jobs in America. Next Friday in Evansville, local workers, labor leaders, and AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka will personally deliver a petition to Whirlpool. Can you add your name?
Sign the petition to Whirlpool: Keep it made in America and save our jobs!

Too many people have lost their jobs. Too many jobs have been sent overseas. Enough is enough! Whirlpool's management can't take our money, shut down our factories, lay off our workers, and kill our American Dream. Together we're going to deliver a loud and clear message to Whirlpool: keep it made in America and save our jobs.

Sign the petition today. We'll deliver it, with your name, next week.

Together we will fight against corporate greed and for good jobs. Together we will rebuild the American economy, because everyone deserves a good job NOW!

Thanks for all you do to defend workers' rights.
