Hershey is North America’s leading manufacturer of chocolate and non-chocolate confectionery products. However, BCTGM members and Hershey provide the world with much more than chocolate and candy treats.
Members employed by Hershey belong to BCTGM Local 464 (Hershey, Pa.).
In Hershey, Pa., the company’s world headquarters, workers are represented by Local 464. In addition to the production of many different chocolate and grocery-related products, Local 464 members work at the “Chocolate Town’s” world-famous Hershey Park, the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center, the Hershey Park Arena, the Hotel Hershey, Hershey Laundry and Hershey Nursery (plant/landscaping center).
Union members produce popular items like Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup, Hershey’s Kisses, Hershey’s Chocolate Chips and the Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar. Other BCTGM products include candy bars like Fifth Avenue, Zagnut, and York Peppermint Patties.
(Hershey operates a number of non-union manufacturing facilities in the U.S. and Mexico that produce Hershey products, including Reese Peanut Butter Cups and more)
