UE exposed Kobe Steel's unionbusting on June 11, with leafleting outside the Japanese corporation’s U.S. headquarters in New York City. Meanwhile, at Kobe plants in Ohio and Indiana on ‘Kobe Workers’ Solidarity Day,’ members of UE and three other unions — PACE, UFCW and USWA — wore solidarity stickers to let their bosses know they stand united for justice. Glastic Plastics in Jefferson, Ohio is one of two Kobe facilities in the U.S. where workers who voted for a union still do not have a first contract. Workers there are represented by UE Local 758.
