The 39th Annual Convention of the International Bakery, Confection, Tobacco & Grain Millers Union (BCTGM) issued special invitations to Tennessee District 86 State Rep. Barbara Cooper and SCLC Memphis President Rev. Dwight Montgomery to attend the event in Las Vegas.
The convention highlighted the Memphis workers’ successful fight to return to work after a nine-month lockout. Cooper and Montgomery were honored for their work on behalf of the locked-out workers.
Montgomery said trying to help the workers revealed something that really made him angry.
