Say NO! to private equity firms like Bain Capital! Indiana Steel Workers have called on Austinites to support their fight for fair wages and affordable healthcare.
C&M Conveyor, producer of conveyors (material handling systems) for the paper and box industries, has been headquartered in Mitchell, Indiana since 1982, with production facilities in both Mitchell and Orleans. The company has had several owners; in 2006 it was acquired by the private equity group Blue Sage Capital, LP.
Blue Sage Capital is a private equity fund that is putting the squeeze on workers. The company has profited by investing other people’s money, at no risk to themselves, then pushing the companies they own to slash costs, often on the backs of workers.
This will be a short 1 hour action. Workers and union organizers from southern Indiana will be in town Thursday morning and are hoping to deliver a letter to Blue Sage about their concerns.
