Bimbo Bakeries USA to Close Fresno Baking Plant in Late March 2015

Bimbo Bakeries USA will close its Fresno baking plant in late March 2015 with plans to shift production to other company bakeries, primarily in Sacramento. The closure will result in the layoffs of more than workers from the plant at L and Los Angeles streets, in an industrial district south of downtown. The company will cease all operations at its facility on or about March 27, 2015 or within a 14-day period commencing on that date. This action will result in complete closure of the employment site. As a result of this closure, it is presently anticipated that 92 associates currently employed at the facility will be permanently laid off from employment on March 27, 2015 or in the two weeks after that. Among the affected employees are workers and forepersons in packaging and wrapping, shipping, production and sanitation; truck drivers; machine operators; and oven operators. The workforce includes positions that are non-union as well as those represented by the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union; the International Union of Operating Engineers; the International Brotherhood of Teamsters; and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. The company said it plans to shift production from Fresno to other bakeries in the Bimbo network, mainly to its more efficient facility in Sacramento. Dangelmaier, in his notice to the state, said that distribution operations at the Fresno bakery will move to Bimbo's distribution center on South Willow Avenue at the southern fringe of town. But outside of any bumping rights for union workers.
