Do you think that Hostess closing is just another Union busting method?

    Do you think that Hostess closing is just another Union busting method?

    The evening news only gives some of the management's side of the contract dispute. They never explain the Union workers reason for going on strike. As a member of the Teamsters, I can tell you that no Union strikes just for the heck of it. So there's a very good reason behind what is happening. Most likely it's just upper management trying to fatten up their wallets, which has become a big problem here in the good old USA.

    True , yet in todays world unions are just too big and powerful, re-negotiating contracts  constantly and excessively ,  choking the profits out of a borderline profitable business. Yes , as well to corporate controls, monopolizing  and domineering of employees.and of the economy . Its two fold for blame ,everyone wants  more more more ...........

    In short, yes.  The CEO and other top people there have received massive raises since they first started having financial difficulties a couple of years ago.  The CEO can get a salary increase into the millions for running a company into the ground - but the workers should just accept peanuts and suck it up?  It's very typical of vulture capitalists to do things like this...

    Yes, I agree...those at the top control the finances and those on the bottom are their legs whom they think aren't in important. As said in the other to comments, it is the way of big business who disregard the so called, "common people".

      I tend to agree here.  It is a shame the people lost in this deal.
