ILA SUGAR WORKERS BRING PROTEST AGAINST DOMINO TO BALTIMORE

 NEW YORK, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Sugar workers from New York represented by Local 1814 of the International Longshoremen's Association, AFL-CIO will be in Baltimore on Wednesday (Jan. 27) to stage a mid-day protest rally outside the headquarters of Domino Sugar Corporation at 1100 Key Highway East, according to the local president, Frank Lonardo.
 The rally will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
 More than 400 workers have been on strike against Domino Sugar Refinery in Brooklyn, N.Y. since Oct. 2, 1992. This past Sunday (Jan. 24), ILA sugar workers rejected Domino Sugar's latest contract offer by a vote of 145-132.
 "There's nothing sweet about Domino Sugar!" is the message ILA members and their families will deliver at the mid-day Baltimore rally. ILA members from the Port of Baltimore, along with other unions affiliated with the Maryland State AFL-CIO will join the ILA strikers at the protest rally.
 "We hope to spread the word to our brother and sister members in Maryland that we're still on strike in New York," said Lonardo.
