    I guess the employees that lost their job didn't get any satisfaction. So what did they have to lose, except their income, their homes and possibly everything they owned.
    Did Trump help ?

    Oreo parent Mondelez sweetens deal, but union isn't biting

    And the game playing continues....
    Mondelez International, the Deerfield-based global snack food company known for brands like Oreo cookies and Ritz crackers, has sweetened its offer to more than 2,000 unionized workers who have been without a contract for more than two years.

    Members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers & Grain Millers union would each get a $15,000 bonus if they ratify the deal by Sunday. Such a conclusion to the prolonged impasse appears unlikely, though, as union leaders said Wednesday that Mondelez’s offer amounts to a net loss for its members. The plan would shift workers from a pension fund’s defined benefit plan to a 401(k)-style plan — a prime point of contention.

    In total, seven contracts covering workers in Chicago and seven other locations expired at the end of February 2016. More than 400 Chicago-area workers would be covered by a new agreement, according to the union.

    At the Mondelez annual shareholders meeting Wednesday in Lincolnshire, new CEO Dirk Van de Put defended the company’s offer. The bakery and confectionery pension fund that currently provides retirement benefits for the union workers is in “critical and declining status,” and likely will be insolvent within 13 years, Van de Put said.

    Nabisco unilaterally implements its terms on union workers

    As of today, Mondelēz is unilaterally implementing parts of its final union contract offer at Nabisco bakeries around the United States. The move comes after a two-year standoff during which no negotiations have taken place — and three days after the expiration of a company ultimatum. Mondelēz asked its roughly 2,000 union workers to agree to let it worsen their health benefits and withdraw from the union-sponsored pension plan in exchange for a one-time $15,000 contract ratification bonus, pay raises, and a new 401(k); the company said the bonus offer would be valid through May 20 only. Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco and Grain Millers (BCTGM) rejected the company’s request that union members vote on that offer.

    Then the company notified BCTGM May 22 that it intended to implement two aspects of its offer — wage and retirement — and laid out the details in a May 23 letter to workers.

    “It’s another cutesy move by the company,” said Ron Baker, BCTGM International Strategic Campaign Coordinator. “We’re certainly not done with them.”

    Seems word is floating about Mondelēz ( Nabisco ) closing another US plant. This one is in Fair Lawn NJ.

    Nabisco factory in N.J. may close, company says
    The iconic plant, which has been open for 62 years, may close as a way of diminishing the company’s geographic footprint and due to outdated manufacturing facilities and infrastructure, said Laurie Guzzinati, a spokeswoman for Mondelez. No decisions have been made, but the international food and beverage company was considering closing the plant, leaving just two facilities on the East Coast, she said.
    Fair Lawn was previously faced with the possibility of the Nabisco plant closing a few years ago, said Peluso. Mondelez at the time was deciding between closing facilities in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania or Richmond, Virginia, along with the Fair Lawn plant, he said.
    Ultimately, the company decided to shutter the Philadelphia facility, leading to a collective sigh of relief for employees, many of whom were Fair Lawn residents or from the area, said Peluso.
