The Bakers Union went on strike and refused to negotiate so that the company could remain viable. So instead of having a job at a lower salary, they have no jobs. Good move unions!
As Twitchy reported, thanks to the greedy thugs in the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM), Hostess will be shutting down operations and firing 18,500 employees, most of whom are not BCTGM members.
Today, the Teamsters Union announced its recommendation to the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM) that a vote of its Hostess members by secret ballot should be held to determine if the workers want to continue their strike of the company and force it into liquidation.
On Wednesday, Nov. 14, Hostess Brands indicated that if it couldn’t resume normal operations by 5 p.m. EST on Thursday, Nov. 15 that it would have to begin the liquidation process. Teamster Hostess members and all Hostess employees should know this is not an empty threat or a negotiating tactic, but the certain outcome if members of the BCTGM continue to strike.
