Bakers’ union on strike against Hostess (twinkies ho ho's cup cakes etc) [View all]

Source: Dallas News Com

The tense relationship between Hostess Brands and its second largest union deteriorated further Friday when the bakers’ union said it is going on strike against the bankrupt snack maker, beginning today.

Hostess has said repeatedly a prolonged strike would result in a “rapid” wind down of the company, which has been in bankruptcy court since January.

In a news release issued late Friday, the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union called the move”an inspiring display of courage and conviction.”

It was not clear where picket lines have been established. Officials with the union and with Hostess could not be reached for comment.
