Employees of this facility were notified by Plant Manager Gary Lauber that the Imlay City Plant clould be closed. They (Pinnacle) will make a final decision by the end of March 2012.

Either Imlay or Millsboro, DE or a new facilty will be built, per the notice we received. Either way, we have a one in three chance to survive. Not very good odds.

Has Pinnacle advised City/County/State officials of its plans???

Blackstone is preparing a Pinnacle IPO sale to take place within the next 2 quarters

http://www.altassets.net/private-equity-news/...

Blackstone is very quiet on this deal.

Is it likely they do not want Pinnacle sale information to leak out before labor negotiations with Imlay City and Millsboro are complete.

Do Blackstone and Pinnacle Foods really want a major Vlasic Plant shutdown of Millsboro or Imlay City just before selling the company? or are they secretly planning to keep both plants open with any new 10 year contract agreement with the Unions. A 10 year labor agreement would be a very attractive selling point to Wall Street buyers to get the highest price for the Pinnacle IPO.

It was approved 140 to 105, yet many questions remain becouse the union allowed some folks to vote that were not members in good standing.

You need to look at the blog for Millsboro Plant Closure more info to Imlay.

It sounds like Imlay need to vote again without the seasonal workers and take it from there

You are so stupid to think that Millsboro would be that the one Company would pick to remain open.
