Stella D'oro: Long Workers' Strike Comes To End But Company Decides To Shut Down Factory

With passing trucks and buses honking their support, employees of the Stella D'oro Biscuit Company chanted, "The workers -- united -- will never be defeated," as they filed through the gates of the factory in the Bronx on Tuesday.

Their sense of accomplishment was hard-earned: they had walked out in August and kept up a picket line through the fall, winter and spring of a deepening recession. They sued the company for unfair labor practices and prevailed in court, winning the right to return to work, proud that not one worker had broken ranks.
