Rosenberger’s Dairies Workers Join Teamsters

Workers with Rosenberger’s Dairies in Hatfield, Pa., have voted to join Teamsters Local 463, based in Fort Washington, Pa. There are 100 workers in the bargaining unit.

“I was all for the vote,” said Dave Shearer, who has worked at the company for nine years. “Management changed the rules day by day, hour by hour. We need equal pay rates for the different jobs. Things have gotten worse over the years. We needed a change.”

Rosenberger’s is owned by HP Hood LLC. Teamsters Local 463 already represents drivers, lab technicians and production workers at Penn Maid, also an HP Hood LLC brand.

“We are confident going into negotiations. We already have two contracts with this company,” said Robert Ryder, Local 463 Secretary-Treasurer.

Rosenberger’s mechanics and drivers have also expressed interest in joining Local 463.
