London, Ont. – July 20, 2018 – UFCW Canada Local 175 members at the Dr. Oetker frozen pizza production facility in London, Ontario are preparing to bargain a first contract after a victorious organizing drive. The plant, which opened in 2014, is a production hub for the company's North American pizza operations. Dr. Oetker pizza varieties and brands include Casa di Mama, Ristorante, Giuseppe Pizzeria and Pizza Tradizionale.
Workers at Dr. Oekter reached out to UFCW Canada Local 175 in January of this year to learn about the benefits of belonging to our Union. The campaign lasted five months and led to a victory in early May.
Members held their first proposal meeting on July 7. There are approximately 250 employees in the bargaining unit who work in a number of departments at the plant.
