Mountaire Farms employees petitioning to decertify union

SELBYVILLE, Del. – The National Labor Relations Board has ruled that employees at the Mountaire Farms processing plant in Selbyville who are members of the Teamsters Local 355 will be able to vote to decertify the union.

We’re told approximately 230 employees at the plant are members of the Teamsters Union and work in various departments at the plant.

In December 2021, employees who were part of the United Food Commercial Workers union at the Selbyville plant voted to decertify that union through a mail-in ballot process. The final count of 356 to 80 was certified in late December. Following that election, a Teamsters union employees gathered signatures and submitted a petition to the NLRB in early February, asking to decertify the Teamsters union.

This election will be held in person at the plant on March 17th, and overseen by the NLRB.

Selbyville is the only processing plant owned by Mountaire Farms that has a union.
