Are you remembering the diamond walnut strike? Here are some viewpoints on that, no opinion on accuracy... Why didn't Hostess hire all new people, if this is the case?

"The battle at Diamond Walnut has ground on for over 40 months, not because its workers made excessive demands, nor because their employer faced desperate economic conditions. This has been a strike against the modern day industrial death sentence itself - against permanent replacement, or in not so polite, but truer, language, strikebreaking.

The strike at Diamond Walnut, the battles at Caterpillar, Bridgestone and Staley in Illinois, and other strikes like them which have torn communities apart in recent years across the country, could all have been resolved quickly but for one thing. The employers in every case hired strikebreakers. This simple act converted traditional job actions over resolvable issues of wages and working conditions into desperate struggles for survival for the workers and unions involved.

In a rightward drifting America, losing a strike no longer means accepting a lower wage or poorer benefits. It means losing your job."
