The problem arose in december 1957, when Bow was expelled from Al Cio and lol 464 Dis affiliated from Bow and accepted a charter of a new International Abc formed by Al Cio. Hershey chocolate corporation received notices from both unions claiming that they were entitled to recognition As the bargaining agent and directing that the dues be paid to them.
