Apparently the 5,600 didn't bother with common sense. They just followed the union boss - who is still collecting a large paycheck, BTY.

Nice "work", where the agreed upon pay ISN'T PAID !!! Details, huh ???

Ignore the inconvenient truth, where the worker said the unpaid pension money was the last straw...

Keep hating American workers and losing elections...

Seems right...

Interesting, isn't it? The union boss who encouraged the bakers' union to turn down the bankrupcy contract had nothing to lose, he is still in charge of the union. Meanwhile, 5600 bakers are out of work, while the head of the union leaves to go poke some other company with a stick.

The statement he made after the decision to sell off the assets was priceless, paraphrased "the union looks forward to helping the new owners of these brands to get going on the right foot"......

Really funny.

Until the company announced Friday that it intended to liquidate and lay off most of its nearly 19,000 employees, Hostess Brands, the maker of iconic Twinkies and Wonder Bread, had spent several months in acrimonious talks with the two unions that represent the bulk of its workforce.

Ultimately, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, and the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers' International Union chose very different paths in negotiations, raising the question of just how much workers should give up when management insists the company's survival depends on it.

With Hostess claiming that its union contracts were too onerous,
the Teamsters acquiesced in September to significant pay and pension cuts for workers, even though employees had agreed to concessions in Hostess' previous bankruptcy. The bakers' union, however, fought the proposal, culminating with a strike launched last Friday that affected more than 20 of Hostess' bakeries, according to the company.

Now, Hostess is winding down. Publicly, management has attributed its decision directly to the bakers union strike, even though the company had plenty of problems aside from labor issues, including a customer base that has been turning away from the likes of Twinkies and Ding-Dongs for healthier foods.

Even knowing Hostess may have been doomed in the long run, some Teamsters said they can't help but feel like collateral damage in the bakers' union's showdown with management.

"We did everything we could to save the company," said Joseph Ortuso, a Teamster and sales route driver from New Jersey who'd been with Hostess or its acquisitions for more than two decades. "We never gave up during bankruptcy. We fought in the marketplace to retain our business. In the end, somebody else made the decision."

"They're losing [5,000] jobs," Ortuso said of the bakers' union, "but they're costing 18,900 people their jobs."

A spokeswoman for the bakers' union, whose website crashed after the news of Hostess' liquidation broke, told HuffPost the union is not commenting to the press. In a statement last week, the union called the strike "an inspiring display of courage and conviction," and after Hostess issued an ultimatum on Thursday, the union released a statement attributing the company's woes to mismanagement rather than its workforce.

Actual union chief statement.

Throughout this arduous process, our membership has believed that the key to these brands’ survival was strong, new ownership and a sustainable business model. Indeed, new ownership has signaled a clear intent to accelerate this process and return products back to the shelves as soon as this summer. We share the enthusiasm, energy and passions exhibited by new ownership and believe our highly motivated and skilled workforce will serve as indispensable partners in the seamless re-opening of factories.

In this way, new ownership can proudly demonstrate their commitment to preserving middle-class jobs while delivering on their promise to consumers.

http://www.aflcio.org/Blog/Corporate-Greed/Sa...

Actual reality of union factories and distribution centers:

The former Hostess Brands/Wonder Bread distribution center and thrift shop in Fredericksburg are for sale as part of the company’s bankruptcy proceedings.

Hilco Real Estate is selling the property at 1323 Powhatan St., according to the sign on the 0.86-acre property. Hilco is selling other Hostess Brands sites all across the country, including one in Chesapeake.

The Fredericksburg site includes a 1,890-square-foot retail storefront, a 7,300-square-foot office and a 5,200-square-foot warehouse with a truck garage.

There is no offering price listed on the Hilco website. Interested parties are told to call 855/755-2300 or visit hostessrealestate.com .
