Memphis, Tenn. • A judge has ordered Kellogg to put employees at its Memphis, Tennessee, cereal production facility back to work.
The ruling on Wednesday came after the National Labor Relations Board filed a complaint in March against the company related to a lockout of about 220 employees.
Contract negotiations between the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union and Kellogg failed in October.
WMC-TV (http://bit.ly/1s6y7nh) reports U.S. District Judge Samuel Mays gave the Battle Creek, Michigan-based Kellogg five days to put the Memphis employees back to work with the same pay and working conditions that were in place when the lockout began.
