The families of Kohler’s UAW Local 833 have been on strike since November 15th, taking a moral and necessary stand for equal pay for equal work—fighting back against an unjust two-tier wage system that pays workers different wages for the same job that traps lower-tier workers in a cycle of low wages.
The UAW Local 833 is hosting a holiday toy drive for the children of striking families. They are looking for new, unwrapped toys for children, ages 0-to-17, whose families are involved in the strike.
If you would like to donate to the toy drive, please drop off donations at the Wash Dem Office at 132 North Main Street in West Bend. A volunteer will drive to Sheboygan to deliver the toys.
Please note that the UAW Local 833 continues to run its food pantry as well, and we will continue to run weekly donations up to their food pantry as well.
You may also help the UAW Local 833 families by donating to their strike fund that is used to help the strikers with bills and insurance. You can send donations to: UAW 833 Kohler Strike, Emil Mazey Hall, 5425 Superior Avenue, Sheboygan, WI 53083.
