Kellogg’s to hire strikebreakers

“Kellogg’s plans to start hiring permanent replacements for some of its 1,400 striking cereal plant workers after negotiations broke down again,” ABC News reported on Tuesday, November 23, 2021 (story here).

Unionized Kellogg’s workers have been striking since early October over a two-tiered wage system “that gives newer workers less pay and fewer benefits,” ABC News said, adding, “The strike has become increasingly bitter.”

Two-tier wage systems have become popular in corporate boardrooms and C-suites in recent years, because they not only cut wages, but also create divisions among workers. Newer workers resentful of the older workers’ higher pay and benefits are less likely to support a union. (See story here.)

The union, for its part, may feel it needs to fight that tactic as a matter of self-preservation.
