Guess you must work for manpower. What is going on is ice cream. Busy for first part of year then slows down. There are two lines going to Tn, and new one going in at north as we speak. And by the way all this info is on the walls in the hallway at north. Tn factory is not big enough for all of Sikeston so get your facts straight. So like I first stated you must work for manpower.

Ice cream costs too much.Have you seen how high it is in the grocery stores? Not a big demand for it anymore.Looks bad for Sikeston plants.Everytime I buy it it has freezer burn because it has been in the store so long so I just quit buying it..

Sikeston is an innovation plant where the new ice cream is made. As far as you buying ice cream with freezer burn, that has no reflection on who made it. The store you are purchasing it from needs to check their products, etc. Furthermore, check the stocks on ice cream....it's up on all brands.

That is what they were saying. The ice cream costs so much that it stays in the freezers at the store so long it gets freezer burns. Noone blamed anyone where it is made for anthing. Damn are you that stupid that you cant comprehend what you read?

talk the talk dummy, the fact remains, if it ain't selling in the stores it will trickle down to not making it at all. supply and demand. if its bad enough people stop buying. stocks are high now because of the weather, people remember if its worth buying again.

You are not really worth the time for any reply, you ignorant, condescending, rude, horses ass. However, your hateful response to people has prompted me to tell you that you're the only one who appears to be lacking in the intelligence department on this particular thread. I guess you were never taught how to have a grown up conversation. Generally, people who have 1/2 a brain don't start cursing & belittling others for statements & opinions that differ from their own. However, I decided that since you seem to only understand that type of conversation, I will stand by my earlier statement, & reiterate the fact that you truly seem like a horses ass.

Exactly what would make you think that the restockers on nights at Wal-Mart in Sikeston have intimate knowledge about the national ice cream demand? They reallocated the TN plant because it was central, just like us. We are THE plant. Anyone who says different is naive or trying to incite the workers. I'm certain you will come back with some lame example or some lackluster reason they might shut it down, but they won't. Trust me. We are the pride and joy. As long as we continue to innovate and crank out ice cream like we have, there's nothing to worry about. People ALWAYS buy ice cream. In a bad economy, more people get food stamps. The people who buy our expensive stuff can afford it, bad economy or not. Ice cream always sells. Period.

The stores leave it out on the floor to long before putting it into the freezers. You can tell by the cartons that the ice cream has been thawed and refrozen.

Here at Henderson, we are having layoffs for the rest of the year. Just wonder if the other plants our doing the same. They say its the pond and the city won't let us run so many lines (9)only each week. Some of the lines are 4 days only. Are you guys running full production and overtime? Unilever really has us in a downhill spin with oee% which we can get near because of old equipment and running out of material or supplies.

They won't shut the plants down in Sikeston because they are the biggest in North America. The number crunchers up top raised the price of ice cream in the stores because it wasn't selling for 2.50. It doesn't make sense so in turn that leads to laying off people. Just because the north plant is sending a couple machines to Covington doesn't mean bad news entirely. They are getting a Magnum bar line in when the others go out. People time and time again have stated Good Humor is shutting the doors, but they haven't. People get laid off at every job (ie. Noranda, Associated Electric). Unilever plants will continue to trade ice cream lines with other plants, and if worst thing should happen South plant will get shut down and move everything to the North Plant (if the proceed to add on to it) lines and people included.

You"re getting screwed then because the containers and weight are getting smaller while the price is getting higher!!! Check the label out a little more closely the next time you pick some up at the store....Also, those employees fuck, suck and 69 their way around that plant and have been doing so for years....They act like dogs in heat! You couldn't PAY me to eat that shit!
