Things are getting ugly.
Kellogg’s recently faced a huge problem when 1,400 cereal plant workers decided to go on strike after the company refused to give them a “fair contract”.

According to Fox Business, president of Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union Anthony Shelton accused Kellogg’s of asking their workers to give up quality health care, retirement benefits, and holiday and vacation pay and has threatened to send jobs to Mexico if they don’t comply.

Kellog, who makes a very large profit off their cereal sales, is claiming that the compensation and benefits offered to their cereal plant employees is one of the industry’s best packages.
“We are disappointed by the union’s decision to strike … our offer includes increases to pay and benefits for our employees,” Kellogg spokesperson Kris Bahner said.

The company has also claimed that they have a plan in place so distribution of cereal won’t be affected if the strike continues.
Workers at all of Kellogg’s U.S. cereal factories are on strike after the company attempted to make changes to benefits and vacation time.
