Schakowsky, Jewish groups urge good ‘working environment’ at Postville


A  Jewish Illinois congresswoman, along with a group of 15 Jewish organizations, are urging the new owner of the Postville kosher meatpacking plant to forge a new and productive "working environment" with the Postville community.

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) and the group of Jewish organizations each sent letters to the new owners of the former Agriprocessors plant, SHF Industries and Agri Star Meat & Poultry, asking president Daniel Hirsch to meet and form a relationship with the Postville Community Benefits Alliance.

Both letters can be read here.
