    Unions representing Hostess Bakery workers were warned bu the company that a job action would result in the company shutting down and seeking to liquidate assets.
    The unions refused to budge and decided the company owners were bluffing. Today, 18,500 workers lost their jobs and an American Icon was put out of business by greedy union bosses.

    This is the very same union we have at our company!!!! and they are WORTHLESS!

    What's really weird to me is..that we're with the Grainmiller's union, yet we have nothing to do with food. Our company makes silicone hoses for cars, trucks, Boeing, some medical. Lol! Anyway....like i said, they are WORTHLESS!

    Correct. All they had to do is accept the reality of the situation and go back to work.
    The union said stay the course. Are the union bosses out of a job? Oh HELL NO.
    BTW, the unions also fucked over all the employees that were NOT members of the collectives.
    Of course they don't care about THOSE people.

    That's alright. The Flight Attendants at US Airways are represented by a union of unrelated work.
    Happens all the time. It's kind of amusing.
