Murder & Strikebreaking At Bay Point Henkel Aerospace: CEO Hans Van Bylen’s War On Workers

Eighty four Henkel Aerospace IAM 1584 workers went on strike on October 16, 2017 at Henkel’s Bay Point plant in California to protect their health and safety conditions at the plant that manufactures adhesives for Boeing and other airline companies. The company has prevented proper health and safety conditions which directly led to the death in 2013 of a temporary worker 26-year-old David Eleidjian who was also an ex-Marine. After only a month on the job he was working alone and pulled into a mixing machine. The company was fined $200,00 by OSHA for these serious violations that led to Eleidjian’s death but was not prosecuted by the District Attorney for murder. They have also continued the same deadly work practices in the factory that has led to serious burns and other injuries in the dangerous process of producing these adhesives. These dangerous working conditions were also an important reason that workers went to the IAM to protect their rights and prevent further injuries and deaths on the job. They have also retaliated and discriminated against union leaders and members at the plant in an effort to get the union out of the plant. The company has also brought in a national union replacement/strike breaking company Strom Engineering with scab workers. This company also trained and brought in 3,000 mechanics to break the strike of the Northwest Airline mechanics who were also members of the IAM. Henkel is now spending millions of dollars on these strikebreakers and temporary workers at Bay Point to destroy the union at the plant. The chairman of the management board of Henkel, Hans Van Bylen made $6,976,661.01last year 2016 in salary and compensation. The company which is based in Düsseldorf Germany also has a unionized cosmetic plant in Berkeley, California that has provided scab supervisors and is also the owner of Dial soap. They have unionized plants throughout Europe and say that they are in a partnership with labor. Henkel also is the owner of the product Dial soap which is very profitable for them in the United States.
