Hostess Must Honor Teamster Contracts
Updated On: Jul 06, 2012

Judge Denies Hostess' Bid to Scrap Teamsters Contract


On May 14, 2012, the judge handling the Hostess bankruptcy denied the company's request to terminate its contract with its biggest union, the Teamsters, sending the bakery company back to the drawing board as it tries to claw its way out of its second bankruptcy in recent years…During the hearing Monday, [Judge Robert] Drain commended the Teamsters union's "level of knowledge" about Hostess and the company's problems. Full story at Dow Jones.

The Union proves it had good cause to fight the company's terms. Teamsters General Secretary-Treasurer Ken Hall said in a press release:

"We told our Hostess members all along that we would vigorously oppose the imposition of unjust working conditions since Hostess first filed bankruptcy and we have done just that. It's a rare day when a bankruptcy judge denies a company's request to reject its union contracts, and I attribute it to the resolve of our members and the team we assembled to fight the company's motion."
