Real news not fake! 3rd party has been in the West Chester warehouse for almost a year now! Don't let upper management fool you. DSD will be ending soon
Fake news? Our warehouse workers were done summer 2017 and it has been outsourced to a 3rd party.
Fake news! 2017??? It's 2018 and the warehouse worker's aren't laid off
April 2017 contract, told us they were going to consolidate warehouses and they are run by third party. Warehouse employees are gone.
Keebler went to a third party carrier straight to the companies warehouses when we were done. They still have some trucking fleet left setting around the country not being utilizited.
The teamsters were no help,the IBT turned their backs on kellogg employees,in the words of our local president"What do you expect the teamsters to do,we don't have the money to fight for your jobs"
As an ex keebler employee id say no,the goal is to not have any employees outside the bakeries.Only way the warehouse benefited is we stayed two months longer than our drivers.Straight from the bakery,common carrier,to the chains warehouse.I think DSD is going to be gone for all companies.
Can a robot do the same job? That's your answer.
Good question. I'm hearing that the warehouses are going to a 3rd party company. 3rd party driver's also. Hopefully the union will help keep your jobs. I'm not sure how that will go down.
