Hostess Mediation Fails, Liquidation To Proceed; Furious Laid Off Workers Now Turn On Labor Union
Hostess Brands Inc. said Tuesday night it would proceed with liquidation plans after mediation fails.

Earlier Tuesday, the head of the bakers union whose strike precipitated Hostess liquidation plans didn't attend a last-ditch mediation session and wasn't hopeful about its prospects, he said.

"I'm not too optimistic about this mediation," Frank Hurt, president of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union, said when reached earlier Tuesday afternoon in Columbus, Ohio. He said he couldn't get to New York, where the session was taking place; instead, he said, the union's secretary-treasurer was attending.



The mediation came at a judge's suggestion after the Twinkie maker said Friday that a week-long strike by the bakers left the company no choice but to seek a bankruptcy judge's approval for liquidation.



The judge, Robert Drain, urged mediation, citing among other things the hope for saving some 18,500 jobs. The company filed for bankruptcy protection for the second time in January.

The result of greed.

I guess the employees are happy. I posted a thread a few days ago asking former hostess employees their thoughts and got no responses.

A month before Christmas and they are out of a job, unemployment is usually only half of what you were earning, and once the govt is finally bankrupt they won't get unemployment or welfare checks.

Greed begets poverty.

"Doug Mansky, a Hostess driver in Detroit and a member of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, was in the process of moving to a cheaper condominium on Tuesday, after his union had agreed to an 8% pay cut that he said would shave $200 a week from his income. After Judge Drain cleared Hostess to impose the same new labor terms on the bakers union, they went on strike."

$2500. x 8%= $200.

wtf

I wouldn`t be surprised to find out that the "mediator" was working for someone trying to buy the company real cheap.It didn`t seem to be very important to him to be there at the meeting..
" It`s only weird the first time" ;p

That does seem like a lot.

Wonder if it was reported correctly - mabye he meant $2500 per month.

In any case, give me half a loaf if that is all there is. . . and believe me half of my loaf would be very small indeed!

The greedy unions with encouragement from their members
just keep squeezing and squeezing until there is no
blood left in the turnip.

The union bosses don't give a shit. Tomorrow they'll
be jetting off somewhere or playing 18 holes.

The workers are workers because they don't have to brains
to be something better, but
they DO understand MONEY.
Short the dumbest worker and instantly he becomes a
financial genius.

They should get together and string up the union bosses.
The workers will be in the unemployment/foodstamp line,
not the union bosses.
