The Facts

On December 21st, the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM) announced the end of the Kellogg’s workers’ strike. The announcement follows the approval of a new five-year contract that applies to the employees of four Kellogg’s cereal plants in the US.

BCTGM members working in cereal plants in Battle Creek, MI, Omaha, NE, Lancaster, PA, and Memphis, TN, voted to accept the Kellogg Company’s recommended collective bargaining agreement, which covers about 1,400 union-represented workers.

The workers’ strike began on October 5th, 2021. According to the Kellogg Company, employees are scheduled to return to work starting the week of December 27th.

BCTGM International President, Anthony Shelton, appreciated the union members’ efforts to achieve a fair contract, noting that the agreement enhances benefits and wages while excluding any concessions.

Kellogg Company Chairman and CEO Steve Cahillane stated, “We are pleased that we have reached an agreement that brings our cereal employees back to work. We look forward to their return and continuing to produce our beloved cereal brands for our customers and consumers.”
