On January 15, 2009, over 200 workers at Colibri received notice that from that day on, the factory was closed. Meanwhile, many workers had given 10, 20, and 30 years of their hard work to the company. Federal Law requires a minimum of 60 days notice for a major plant closing. We didn't even get one day.   
We Demand: 60 days pay, 60 days health care, and severance for years worked.
Join Fuerza Laboral and Colibri workers in protesting Colibri at their East Providence Plant!
