A lively labor rally at Buffalo Wire company underscored the solid backing IAM strikers have received from the Buffalo labor family and the community since the strike began November 5. With the giant rat in attendance, the IAM sent a clear message to management regarding the its opinion of the company’s concessionary demands.
“This strike is about standing strong against those who are trying to destroy a decent standard of loving that all working Americans have a right to,” said Eastern Territory GVP Lynn Tucker. Their fight is our fight. They are true patriots.”

After years of concession by the IAM at Buffalo Wire, workers are tired of subsidizing the company’s mismanagement, pay and lifestyle.
