Union to Talk about Indiana Pillsbury Plant Set to Close

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) – The union that represents workers at a Pillsbury refrigerated goods plant in southern Indiana will meet next month with General Mills officials to discuss the company's plans to close the plant.

General Mills announced last week that it plans to close the New Albany plant by mid-2016. But the company said its decision is subject to negotiation with union officials.

Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union Local 33G represents 335 workers at General Mills' Pillsbury plant in New Albany, as well as 80 workers at a neighboring Sonoco Products plant that could be affected if the Pillsbury plant closes.

Local 33G president Roger Miller tells The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Kentucky (http://cjky.it/1C5N0fJ ) that he's slated to meet for discussions with General Mills officials in early February.
