Workers at Kellogg’s cereal production plants begin strike

Oct. 5, 2021

The Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM) confirmed that 1,400 of its members in Battle Creek, MI, Omaha, NE, Lancaster, PA, and Memphis, TN, went on strike today against the Kellogg Co.

BCTGM members and Kellogg Co. employees in these areas produce Kellogg ready-to-eat cereals, including Rice Krispies, Raisin Bran, Froot Loops, Corn Flakes and Frosted Flakes.

“The BCTGM International Union stands in unwavering solidarity with our courageous brothers and sisters who are on strike against the Kellogg Company," said BCTGM president Anthony Shelton.

Quality health care, retirement benefits, and holiday and vacation pay, and moving jobs to Mexico are among the issues for which union workers are striking.

Kellogg Co. (NYSE: K) plans to issue its 2021 third-quarter financial results on Thursday, Nov. 4.
