(Omaha, NE) -- Kellogg’s and the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers, and Grain Millers union say they have come to an agreement, and that striking workers will return to work next week.
On Tuesday, both Kellogg's and the union confirmed that workers had approved the latest tentative agreement. The latest contract was put before the BCTGM and the four local unions representing 1,400 employees at its U.S. cereal plants in Omaha; Battle Creek, Michigan; Lancaster, Pennsylvania and Memphis, Tennessee — “all of whom are welcome back to work,” Kellogg’s said in its release Tuesday. Union workers had been on strike since the beginning of October.
With the new five-year contract getting approved, the company said employees will return to work next week. “We are pleased that we have reached an agreement that brings our cereal employees back to work,” Kellogg’s Chairman and CEO Steve Cahillane said in the company’s news release. “We look forward to their return and continuing to produce our beloved cereal brands for our customers and consumers.”
