A contract dispute between Kellogg’s and its 225 local union workers started late last year and those employees remain locked out of the plant.
We recently learned employees average about $28 an hour and get a pension and full health coverage but in return often work extra days for the plant.
Kellogg’s says it won’t touch the pay and benefits of current workers, but it does want to lower both for future hires.
Union members say they’ve dealt fairly with the company and don’t think they should be locked out.
James Rivers is an International Representative for the workers’ union, he’s here with local union rep Kevin Bradshaw.
