BIW union calls for return of $45 million tax break for General Dynamics



The union at Bath Iron Works in Maine (builds destroyers for the Navy) refers in the video to the $45 million tax break the state gave General Dynamics a couple years ago.  At the time the union took a membership vote on the corporate welfare bill (which ultimately got cut from the original $60 million request to $45 million) and took no position because the vote was 50-50 for and against.

This is the bill that I did my hunger strike over and we had 100 letters to editor in papers across the state opposing the give-a-way.  It was a great campaign.

It's good to see that the opposition to the corporate tax cut is still growing.
