(Omaha, NE) -- A handful of Nebraska State Senators are throwing their support behind workers on strike at the Omaha Kellogg plant.
As contract negotiations continue, the bipartisan group of 17 senators are asking for the Kellogg’s Company to ensure that their workers are compensated with wages and benefits that match the hard work and dedication they have shown to the company.
The strike began last Tuesday after contract negotiations came to a stalemate. Workers at plants in Tennessee, Michigan, and Pennsylvania also went on strike last week. The plant in Omaha makes Froot Loops, Frosted Flakes, Corn Pops, and Apple Jacks.
The senators say they are proud to have had Kellogg’s in Nebraska for nearly 80 years and encouraged the company to look at the recently passed ImagiNE Nebraska Act, which was specifically crafted to help companies like Kellogg’s grow and expand in Nebraska.
