Actually, Hostess filed ch 11 and attempted to keep all jobs. Union refused to take less money during restructuring of Hostess and voted to strike. The company was barely able to keep the bakeries going and the strike took them over the edge. The closings were due to the strike, not the other way around.

I am a union member and I understand fighting for benefits and pay, but striking yourself out of around 650 union jobs is poor decision making.

The sad part is when the workers go looking for another job and the next company sees that the applicant is from a union plant and has been involved in a union shutdown. They want nothing to do with them. It's like inviting CANCER into your healthy body! Thanks,but NO thanks!!!
