Apparently the Teamsters were not the icing on the cake.
Hourly workers who make TastyKakes yesterday overwhelmingly rejected efforts by the Teamsters to unionize the plant. The company has been union- free for all of its 80 years.
The final tally after Wednesday's balloting was 233 in favor of the union and 442 against.
Members of Teamsters Local 115, who led an eight-month drive at the plant, said they would fight what they called unfair labor practices that intimidated workers into believing a union could threaten the company. The union vowed to arrange another election.
