BREAKING: Striking Kellogg’s Workers Bravely Reject Contract Offer

1,400 Kellogg's workers walked out 9 weeks ago after years of 16-hour shifts, forced overtime, and low pay.

The 1,400 striking Kellogg’s workers have courageously voted to reject the latest contract offer from the breakfast giant. They walked out nine weeks ago after years of 16-hour shifts, forced overtime, and uneven pay. They’ve won some gains, but there’s one big sticking point.

Workers rejected several contracts before this one, blocking Kellogg’s attempt to cut off newer and future employees from attaining full-time pay and benefits. Veteran workers told us they wouldn’t “sell our souls” and abandon their younger colleagues.

By voting down the contract, workers are showing unbreakable solidarity. The deal called for a 3% raise for “legacy” employees, a category that now includes workers on the job for at least four years. But they would not accept the continued division.

Kellogg’s has already started to bring in permanent, non-union scabs. It will also send jobs to Mexico. The company made $3.6 billion this year. Its CEO was given an $11 million paycheck last year.
