BCTGM Region Six International Vice President Randy Roark is pleased to report that BCTGM Local 24 (San Francisco) has successfully organized the new Caravan Baking Company production facility in Union City, California. The bargaining unit will include all production, wrapping, shipping and receiving, maintenance and sanitation departments.
The new bakery already employs 75 bakers who produce Oroweat Sandwich Thins for Bimbo Baking Company. Local 24 represents the bakers at the existing Caravan Bakery, which is running at full capacity.
Roark credits Local 24 Secretary-Treasurer Joseph Biringer and Business Agents Humberto Gomez and Oscar Hernandez with this successful organizing drive. We congratulate Local 24 on this organizing victory and welcome the new members employed at Caravan Baking into our BCTGM family!
