A protest is in the works next week at Frito-Lay Inc. in Menomonee Falls.
On March 21, demonstrators on behalf of the Teamsters Local 344 will assemble outside the business holding signs and distributing literature, at W168N6019 Kohler Lane.
A report was filed with the police department by the Frito-Lay, which will allow to people to hand out literature on the company's property.
The purpose of the demonstration was unclear, but there have been issues at the plant regarding whether workers there should be represented by the union.
According to the Milwaukee Business Journal, employees voted 64-to-57 to not be represented by the union in November 2011.
In January 2012, the union accused the company of directly engaging provoking and supporting the decertification, the Business Journal reported. The union claimed the company engaged in discussions about terms and conditions of employment without working through the union.
The union then filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board’s Milwaukee office.
Patch contacted Frito-Lay, Local 344, and the NLRB Friday afternoon for comment regarding the protest and the investigation. No calls were immediately returned. It’s not yet known what time the demonstration will occur.
