This is a
from the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers (BCTGM).
In a desperate attempt to break the solidarity and resolve of striking BCTGM members across the country, Hostess Brands is falsely claiming that its decision to close three of its bakeries—St. Louis, Cincinnati and Seattle—is the result of the
against the company by BCTGM members.
In fact, according to the company’s 1113 filing with the bankruptcy court earlier this year, as well as its last/best/final and non-negotiable proposal to its BCTGM-represented workers, the company was planning to close at least nine bakeries as part of its reorganization plan, although the company refused to disclose which bakeries it intended to close.
