MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Workers at the Memphis Kellogg plant will return to work next week.

After being locked out for nine months, a federal judge ruled the workers must be allowed to return to their duties.

Kellogg locked the workers out when their union refused to come to a new agreement with the company.

Kellogg wants to hire some non-union employees at $45,000 a year compared to the current salary average of $58,000 a year.

The company has said with overtime some employees are earning around $100,000 a year and, with the cereal industry experiencing declining sales, the company needs to reduce some costs.

Negotiations between Kellogg and the union are continuing.
