    Teamsters fire up website to protest BMW, prepare to picket dealers

    Filed under: Performance, Hirings/Firings/Layoffs, Videos, BMW, UAW/Unions, Luxury



    Ontario, California's Local 495 chapter of the Teamsters union has taken aim at BMW to protest the company's outsourcing of 100 distribution center jobs. Like every large company, BMW is looking for ways to save money in lean times, and laying off unionized workers is an easy way to do that.

    Still, it leaves 100 guys, all of whom have been on the job at least 10 years, without a source of income and up against stacks of bills. To protest, Local 495 set up BMWUltimateMisery.com, depicting an evil, flesh-eating 6 Series threatening a family of workers. On the site, the Teamsters have aggregated headlines and videos relating to their plight.

    To augment the website, they've started picketing BMW dealerships and posting videos to Vimeo saying why they're angry and what they want done about it. We'll leave that for you to figure out by watching the video after the jump. While this is certainly a well-organized protest, we're going to go out on a limb and guess that BMW's mind remains made up. Video and press release are after the break.Continue reading Teamsters fire up website to protest BMW, prepare to picket dealers
