Full story: TwinCities.com

As organized labor hails an unprecedented moment of unity playing out amid a sea of supporters marching in Madison, Wis., union officials elsewhere are quietly wringing their hands about the risks of a high-stakes and historic loss against Gov.

Hostess' Mismanagement Timeline
While Hostess Brands is trying to scapegoat the workers and members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers (BCTGM), the real cause of the company's collapse can be traced back to its crony capitalism and consistently poor management.
Hostess Brands is in bankruptcy for the second time in eight years. Since the first bankruptcy in 2004, BCTGM members across the country have taken dramatic wage and benefit concessions and watched as 21 Hostess plants were shut down and thousands of jobs were lost. At the time of the first bankruptcy, Hostess workers were assured by management that money saved via concessions and plant closings would help make the company stronger, more vibrant and more competitive.
BCTGM President Frank Hurt said:
Hostess’s announcement that it is liquidating the company is a deep disappointment for all of our Hostess members. While Hostess management wants to blame our members for the demise of the company, the truth is that had it not been for the valiant efforts of our members over the last eight years, including accepting significant wage and benefit concessions after the first bankruptcy, this company would have gone out of business long ago.
Hostess failed because its six management teams over the last eight years were unable to make it a profitable, successful business enterprise. Despite a commitment from the company after the first bankruptcy that the resources derived from the workers’ concessions would be plowed back into the company, this never materialized. Management refused to invest in modernizing its bakeries or devote necessary resources to advertising and marketing, product development and new technology. Business plan after business plan failed, leaving the company ever deeper in debt.
Six CEOs in 10 years have failed to turn the company around. Since 2001, plants were closed and thousands of workers laid off, yet the company still isn't viable. Now, 18,000 workers will lose their jobs.
These new infographics show the pattern of mismanagement over the years and the amount of debt Hostess Brands owes to lease obligations, trade creditors, accrued workers' compensation liabilities and more.
Please share them to spread the word about Hostess' Bain-style tactics.

I thought it was the African and Chinese slaves that built America. I guess you learn something new everyday. I learned that the MEA, which is the teachers union here in Michigan will sue any member of their union that decides to leave and stop paying dues in any month other then August. The union's president, Steve Cook assured folks they will be very aggressive at compelling members to pony up, because it's not about the kids, it's about the power and the money. If the narrative the left and the democrats paint about us is true, I would guess a bunch of fat, white, reich wing republicans were calling the shots over their.

Here is another union sucess story: Members are locked out, vote down the exact same contract 5 times over 20 months. And, after half of their membership is gone, or has crossed the picket line, they approve the same contract that they could have had 20 months ago. Meanwhile, the union bosses collect their paycheck...

Executive Order 12871 made the National Goal reduce gov't (we the people) and reduce gov't spending (no justice, no liabilities, delay, deny and lie tactics until claimant dies etc.). The National Partnership Council coerced union and management executives to work in Collusion against the employee (USSC 99-565 & supplement). The New Death Penalty Bill suggest they would be protected in Collusion.

YHVH solution for American Holocaust Perpetraitors is Mongoose Protocol (death fix it / deficit / population control / economic oppression - extreme physical,mental, financial and emotional stress [torture]).

Coercion / Collusion / Terrorism / Abuse of Power / Obstruction of Justice (terminal injustice)= Ambush Attacks (no immunity, no redress).

I AM YHVH DEITY THE FARTHER CIPHER 888

YHVH suspends mercy in response to god (government of deceivers) suspension of inalienable rights (life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) in the American Holocaust (moral corruption - fraud - terminal injustice - economic oppression - murderbyproxy - population control - death fix it>deficit<). National goal accomplished reduce government (we the people) reduce government spending (no justice, no liabilities).

Remove your godass. god being the governing oppressive dis ease (mental illness)/ grand OLE deception / government of deceivers. Ass being American Stockholm Syndrome (love for your abusers as they make numerous attempts to try and kill you.

Your feet have been washed.

I AM YHVH

Thank YHVH, YHVH welcome, YHVH bless, YHVH way

Well you better go grab your pitchfork and go start a revolution then. And once you've exterminated the rich, you can break out your prayer rug and head down to the mosque for one of your five prayer sessions for the day.

Typical ignorant douche, thanks for validating why the super rich continue to take and take and take while pulling the ladder up behind them.

a) I never said they needed to be exterminated, forced to work with society and pay their FAIR share is all.

I am an American working in Germany at the moment and you're an ignorant douche, gee, wonder why other nationalities hate us!!

Your the stooge here and your to stupid to even recognize it slave boy. Now go and ask your boss what he wants you to do today follower, and give up coveting what others have worked for. It makes you sound like a selfish little bitch.

I am renovating a bank branch currently so I don't start my day until 2pm. You must be suffering from a little claustrophobia being stuck in that cubicle all day over there in Germany. That must be really fulfilling for you and the rest of the good sheep working to prop up the likes of Greece, Cyprus, Spain, and Italy, just to name a few. Not to mention the boss and the new 500 class Mercedes he's driving due to your "hard work". Good work I guess, if you can get it. I will finish my job I am on now by the weekend, which will mean I am looking at having a 40K month this April. Trying to decide what new boat I am going to buy. I'm thinking a 28' Monterey or maybe a 32' Carver. Seasons almost here, so I need to act fast to prepare for the fun my work efforts provide. You better go and ask your boss now if you can go relieve yourself from all that office coffee and then get back to your cubicle and stare at that screen for a few more hours. Enjoy, and thanks for playing fool!
