    Default 400 Workers at Marshmallow Peeps Plant Go on Strike

    Oh No!!
    About 400 workers at the Pennsylvania plant that makes marshmallow Peeps and other candies are on strike.

    Workers walked out of the Just Born plant in Bethlehem on Wednesday afternoon. The plant 60 miles north of Philadelphia also makes Mike and Ike and Hot Tamales candies.

    The workers are protesting the company's proposals on wages, health benefits and switching from a pension plan to a 401(k). Employees have been working under an expired contract since June.

    Members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union Local 6 voted to strike on Sept. 2 after unanimously rejecting the company's most recent contract offer.

    I don't care for the candy but did by a bunch for trick or treat last year because they're local. Looks like there may be a bit of a problem.finding it on shelves this year if they don't straighten this out.$$$$$$$

    They'll be fired when the strike ends.

    Just Born sues union, saying ongoing strike violates deal
    The workers' strike at Just Born Inc. in Bethlehem entered its fourth week Wednesday, amid a lawsuit filed by the candy manufacturer against its employees' union.

    Just Born, maker of iconic sweets such as marshmallow Peeps and Mike and Ike chewy candies, says in the federal lawsuit the union violated a no-strike clause in its now-expired contract when workers walked off the job Sept. 7.

    Filed on Monday in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the suit seeks damages and an end to the strike by the Bakery Confectionary Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union of America Local 6.

    Set to expire June 18, the contract was extended through Sept. 18 under a verbal agreement reached between Just Born and the union during contract negotiations Aug. 16, according to the suit.
