Transnational cereal maker Kellogg’s has locked out 220 members of the IUF-affiliated BCTGM since October 22 at its factory in Memphis, Tennessee to force union acceptance of a plan to radically increase the use of casual workers.

KelloggsKellogg’s are proposing to hire  some 30% of the current workforce at significantly lower pay and benefits over the next 3 years with no guaranteed hours. The company has organized this assault while the Master Agreement of 2012, which limits casual work, is still in force.
