Today union members found out the future of hundreds of jobs and the fate of the iconic East Hershey Plant. Hershey Co. union workers have approved the company's plans to shift production from its oldest factory, a move that will likely lead to several hundred workers losing their jobs.

After a long day of voting the ballots are in.

The outcome was 1,317 yes, and 95 no.

By approving the contract, memories will be all that's left of the historic Chocolate Avenue Plant. Hundreds of jobs will now shift over to the modern plant across town.

There is a bitter sweet part of the contract. Staying in Chocolatetown means slashing up to 600 jobs based on seniority.

The shift of production to the West Hershey Plant will happen in phases. It's expected to be completed by the end of 2011.
