Workers and unions find power in tech tools like Facebook, Signal and Zoom in their labor battles



On Oct. 13, eight days after 1,400 Kellogg manufacturing plant employees went on strike, the union posted a photo to its public Facebook page. The photo depicts a worker picketing during a night shift amid a downpour. The caption, written by Jeff Jens, a packing troubleshooter at Kellogg and social media manager for The Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM) Local 50G, reads: “Middle of the night — torrential downpour — fire is drowned out — BUT Local 50G stands strong and our picket sign is higher now than ever before!”
