Workers had been striking for a variety of reasons including issues surrounding compensation, benefits and cost of living, according to its union’s website.Earlier on Tuesday, striking Kellogg workers “overwhelmingly voted to reject” a five-year offer from Kellogg that would have given employees a 3% raise.

The strike began on Oct. 5 and took place for employees at factories in Battle Creek, Mich.; Omaha, Neb.; Lancaster, Pa.; and Memphis, Tenn.According to the Associated Press, one of the specific obstacles in the negotiations has been the company’s wage system that gives newer workers lower pay and fewer benefits. About 30% of the cereal plant workforce receives these lower wages. headtopics.com

Didn’t Starbucks in NY just unionize? Look out for your future. 💪🪓 tonetalks They’re Great!!!!! Tony ain’t playing with y’all! Merry Christmas Nice. Unions do nothing for the worker So is there a call for Boycott of Kellogg's products? tonetalks Vultures Huge Union fail.. We're not being paid fairly! Let's strike! Companies, You're fired! Jacked up. ... looks like unions are far more effective when its a skilled workforce... Trades people, professionals, teachers, etc.. can get away with it.. Factory workers?

I thought we were in the middle of a labor shortage, where are the replacements coming from? Union greed is going to cost union workers their jobs. Seems like they'll never learn. If union and union workers aren't shutting down American businesses they're likely forcing our manufactures to go overseas. Hopefully Kellogg gets rid of the them after what they've done.

Good My dad worked at Keebler turned Kellogg for 50+ years and just recently retired this year, and he can’t stress enough how he got out at the perfect time. The way that company’s upper management handles things is absolutely terrible.

The shitty part is they'll probably pay the new people more out of spite. No more Kellogg’s in my house! And I will boycott Kellogs products! I won’t be buying any Kellog products. Stay strong. Erm. Isn't that illegal? A company management that cannot negotiate with its employees is pathetic. That too, one that has 7.6% net profit margin on average for 15 years on average revenues of $13b, and average dividend per share growth rate of 3.89%. If share holders get 3% raise, why not workers?

Good job Good. Ungrateful, you don’t want to work, plenty would love to have your job, and they would be grateful “We don’t give a shit about anything other than profit” I fully support Unions and benefits. The fact is these people are making CEREAL. 3% raise is insulting and pathetic- but don't expect to be handed a silver platter when you have a high school diploma and make CEREAL. NOW they have no paycheck. 3% is better than no benefits!
