Builders were finding it cheaper to send supplies via post than via wagon freight. In one instance, 80,000 bricks for a new bank were shipped parcel post from Salt Lake City to Vernal, Utah, 170 miles away.

Members at Bimbo Bakeries Ratify 3-Year Agreement
Updated On: Apr 09, 2012

MAR. 9, 2012 | At a ratification meeting held March 3, Entenmann's and Stroehmann employees overwhelmingly approved a new contract agreement that provides wage increases, healthy bonuses for hourly and commission workers, and preserves the 0% employee contribution to health care premiums. About the no-regressions pact, Principal Officer Sean Cedenio said, "After many months of grueling negotiations, the parties arrived at a package agreement in the wee hours of the morning of March 2 - one that employees can be happy with going forward."
