FREEHOLD, N.J. β€” Teamsters Local 11 members who work at Nestle will rally on June 20 to demand the company keep its Freehold plant open.

Teamsters are fighting plans by Nestle USA to close its only coffee production facility in the U.S. and outsource 200 good-paying union jobs to Mexico.

Nestle managers told workers and their Teamsters Union representatives the plant could close by the end of 2023, a decision that would deeply impact workers and the local community.

Nestle made a $17 billion profit in 2022 and has taken $14.5 million in taxpayer-funded public subsidies from the state of New Jersey.
