Kellogg Lockout and Scab Labor

 Union members have been on strike since October rejecting a proposed two-tier system, in which transitional employees get lesser pay and benefits compared to longer-tenured workers.

Temporary strike-breakers have already been working at Kellogg's cereal plants in Michigan, Nebraska, Pennsylvania and Tennessee, Now they will be placed on permanent contracts.  

“Interest in the [permanent replacement] roles has been strong at all four plants, as expected. We expect some of the new hires to start with the company very soon,” Kellogg spokesperson Kris Bahner said.

Kellogg also said there was no further bargaining scheduled and it had no plans to meet with the union.
