    My Dad worker for Silvercup his entire life until it closed because the local Teamster's head refused Silvercup's offer and it shut down. My Dad and all of his friends wanted the union to accept the offer but they refused. Sad. Silvercup made the most delicious white, wheat and whole wheat bread. And it was all natural...no preservatives.

    My Dad worked at Silvercup his entire life...until the Teamsters wouldn't negotiate...even though my father and his friends wanted them to take the offer. They didn't, it closed down and another bakery took over operations. However this didn't last very long and the operation shut down for good.
