Bimbo/Sara Lee Members Vote Unanimously To Accept Contract Extension--Company Seeks to Move Into "Cake" Business Left By Hostess
Updated On: Jul 12, 2014
Members at Bimbo-Sara Lee throughout Local 89‘s jurisdiction voted unanimously to accept a two year extension to their existing contract. The extension maintains current levels of healthcare under Central States and increases for workers paid an hourly rate. Members voted in separate meetings over the past two weeks at Local 89 in Louisville and in Bowling Green.
Bimbo-Sara Lee seeks to move into the “cake” market filling the void left by the dissolution of Interstate Brands. The vote to extend the contract is intended to give the company the ability move into this new area of business while providing more job security to its Teamster workers.
Agent Roy Reynolds would like to thank all those who came out to cast their ballot in this important vote. A special "thank you" goes to all committee members for all their hard work. Thank you for your solidarity!
