On May 1, the Maintenance and Refrigeration employees at the OK Foods plant located in Heavener, Oklahoma facility voted against representation by the United Food and Commercial Workers Union.  After the election, the union filed objections to the defeated vote and lodged allegations with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

OK Foods continues to deny any and all allegations and stands behind the May 1 vote.  During the investigation, the NLRB has made no formal findings based on the union’s allegations; conversely, it has dismissed some allegations and found that the union should present the remaining allegations to an Administrative Law Judge.

 “We look forward to presenting our case and refuting the union’s remaining allegations,” said R. Trent Goins, president & CEO of OK Foods.  “Our employees are important to OK Foods, and we will continue to stand behind them, determined to uphold their May 1st choice. As I stated in May, I continue looking forward to working with our employees to make OK Foods the best possible place; we are a team, and each member–and their voice–is valued and respected at OK Foods.”
