Topics regarding layoffs at Dean Foods Co.
Rumor here is we are loosing the Dollar Stores. Is that everywhere ? Just a bad rumor ?
Is there any word that DFA is going to slowly phase out certain brands and force them to the warehouse?
DFA in talks to start making cuts across the board according to insider at Kansas City office. Mass reorganization of former Dean Foods workforce about to take place. Just a morsel if info I’m passing along.
As i work for DFA, I’m being told by higher up managers that the 30 sell period has come and gone with no buyers for Franklin, now the government steps in and trys to sell it for 60 days and than if no one has purchased it by then than there is... — read more
Who thinks Franklin is about to close? Running soft. Dairy is running just 4 days meaning we get only 32 hours. The tyrant supervisor in the chest and case room is pushing everyone to the limits and wonders why noone will work for him. He steps on... — read more

Looks like we a have a buyer for Chemung and DePere. SELECT MILK PRODUCERS, also known as Select Dairy and Fair Oaks Farms

Get rid of all of them. They are not doing their jobs. They act like they own everyone for keeping company afloat.

If you get hurt on the job don't expect anyone to check on you
While on the front line didn't pay hazard pay worked everyday 6 days a week record numbers of getting milk out and didn't offer nothing but a gallon of milk to each employees we put our life on the line ..
As well as more layoffs. It's obvious that the company has once more decided to cut its way to profit. I'm not sure that's possible, considering that every time they've tried it before it didn't work, which is why we are in this situation as it is... — read more
What is so great about you guys??? All you are is a bunch of mules. Half the time you guys don’t even help load or move a crate at stores. All you do is sign dockets.
Court approved, stamped, sealed and delivered. Take it or leave it. It’s their show now.
DFA and Dean Foods are draining the swamp, and they are coming for you next! The CBA's will be struck down, and DFA will have their way with you! To those who say, "oh well I will just vote NO, and that'll show them who's boss!" Well I hate to be the... — read more

What is so “special” about this facility? Constant talk on here about this place. What is it? Skilled labor, state of the art equip, pay rates, location, family life? Someone please fill me in. This whole board is full of Le Mars.
With Dean Foods using all kinds of underhanded methods to get rid of employees - such as firings for no reason - is it even realistic to expect to receive any kind of severance once the next round of layoffs arrives? They don't even seem to care... — read more

Inside sources in Kansas City finished up with a meeting Friday. Tiny morsel has been thrown my way that DFA will be in the process of reorganization of plant labor and to cut staff to do more with less bodies.
It cannot continue like this
Anyone heard anything for who had bid on these places or is it all a front for the DOJ to say we tried?
With DFA having to now sell off three plants, including Franklin MA, will the original owner, finacial advisor for dfa, Al Bernon purchase back the company. Rumor has it Yes. Any insight?
Just like Dean Foods. A total waste of time and you wonder how it got to be where it is now!!!??
I work at a different company which also has a very active forum on this website and I've never seen this product before until I got it at a food bank. The plant number is 04-607.
A rash of firings at my location. Some are valid others are almost bogus and made up. We lost 12 guys here in the last 2 weeks. Immediate replacement with temp to hire guys. This is terrible and we are way behind on production. Any other locations... — read more
