UFCW Welcomes New Members at Dunn-Rite

November 25, 2019

UFCW Local 832 would like to welcome the Maintenance Department at Dunn-Rite to the Union.  These members maintain the equipment and make sure production lines are running correctly. Without these workers, the plant stops.

Union organizer, Mike Howden was approached with issues of wages and workplace respect and dignity after seeing the improvements that UFCW members were gaining on the production side, and they wanted to have a strong unified voice to stand up to management and improve their conditions.

“Congratulations to these new members at Dunn-Rite,” stated Jeff Traeger, President of UFCW Local 832. “We are proud to welcome them will be holding proposal meetings shortly so we can begin to work towards their first contract."

The majority of the plant at Dunn-Rite is already unionized with UFCW Local 832. The maintenance department is one of a few remaining departments that was previously excluded from the main contract.
