Seems a poor strategy at a time of low unemployment and "people don't want to work."

i mean as long as we keep enough people hungry enough all the time...
not like you can actually hate on a replacement worker, that is themselves only avoidant destitution and homelessness for their own children.


That idea of "stealing bread" except it really does not matter what is being stolen, but why.
Anyone close enough or already over the edge, is not someone it is reasonable to imagine you can or should hold their feet to any morality fires.

As long as people we know to be immoral have excess, while others of their own civilization go without any. There is no morality that is reasonable to demand of those with out. If they, the have nots, show it, morality, they show themselves to be the real humans on earth. But anyone else that actually imagines to expect of the have nots, what the haves can be observed to freely do. Is part pf the problem.

Yeah. Maybe they think our moment of sanity won't last long, but that is quite a bet to make.

Sounds like an ethics lecture I heard in college one time.

As if Kellogg's Corn Flakes didn't already look like scabs, now Kellogg's got scabs making that shiat, too!

Good luck getting the blacklegs for it.  Especially with the promise that the jobs are going to Mexico muy pronto.

Honestly, surprised more wasn't trans-border already.  So much Mondelez/Nabisco is hecho en México.  Nobody seems to notice much.

I suspect the company was hoping for this outcome the whole time. Great way to get rid of a union.

hmmm...new corporate strategy is to negotiate in bad faith and when Unions reject these crappy offers claim that Unions are negotiating in bad faith and then bust the Union.

The Union should be starting to sue the everloving fark out of Kellogg.

Boycott Kellogg's.

Two scoops of scabs would been a rather unappetizing headline.

Bad time to try & fill 1,400 factory positions. Let's see how that goes for them.

That's not the goal. Gives them cover to move the plants.

Yeah, so much of this is very much not legal.

But it's also a shame that our court system all but openly hates unions and sucks corporate dick for breakfast.

"While certainly not the result we had hoped for, we must take the necessary steps to ensure business continuity"

The necessary steps are to negotiate and sign a f*cking fair contract, you sh*t stains.

So is this the end of the strike and also the union?
 
2021-12-07 10:24:51 PM  
Apparently Kellogg's wants a redo of the warfare of the late 1800s back when companies simply dismissed unions through court orders and sicced the police and military on strikers.

May any scab that crosses the picket line never know a moment's peace.
