Striking Kellogg’s Workers Expose Company’s Lies
Kellogg’s workers are firing back after management released a video spreading lies about the 1,400 striking cereal-plant workers.
Kellogg’s workers in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, are setting the record straight, after the company released a video criticizing the striking Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers’ International Union members. Workers say that Kellogg’s system forces them into 16-hour graveyard shifts. And amid record profits, the company now wants to cut wages and health care.
1,400 Kellogg’s workers at the company’s four U.S. cereal plants have been on strike since October 5. The workers are protesting intense 7-day workweeks, forced overtime, and a two-tier contract system.
