Darien’s Birds Eye workers to vote on union
DARIEN A group of workers at Darien’s Birds Eye Foods Inc. plant will vote June 26 on whether to join the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, according to a story in the Business Journal.
Twenty-eight process control and quality assurance employees at the plant, located at W8880 County Highway X, would be represented by the UFCW Local 1473 if the vote passes.
