Unions only care about the bosses of the union organization and then you got people blindly following. What the heck, 99 weeks unemployment, food stamps, free medical, free heat/cooling assistance, monthly cash, and an obama phone.

I don't often agree with the Teamsters Union, which represents the Hostess/Dolly Madison/Wonder Bread truck & delivery drivers. :roll:

They have been critical of the Bakers & Confectioners Union which represented the company plant employees. Teamsters actually crossed picket lines for a week and continued to deliver products produced by management and non-union employees. They have been demanding that the Bakers & Confectioners Union allow it's members to vote on the Hostess contract. Instead Union leaders refused and decided to order the strike, which forced Hostess already cash strapped and in bankruptcy to close all it's plants and end production pending the sale of the company. :shock:

There is no secret that the product brand names are worth millions. But it's plants, vehicles and equipment are old, out-dated and worn out. Most plants are barely at 50% of production capacity. Sales of the cakes, cookies and bread have fallen as prices for raw ingredients and materials continue to rise. With labor being the most expensive element in the product, that's a recipe for failure. :oops:

Look for someone to buy the company, assets and brands at a bankrupt price and continue production in newer non-union plants. International companies rumored to be interested include Mexico's Groupo Bimbo the largest bread baker in the world. The company already owns US bakeries Sara Lee, Roman Meal, Oroweat, Entenmann's and other regional brands. They just build a new state of the art bakery in the same industrial park next to Target & Home Depot Distribution centers. 8-)

I don't eat that crap, but yes the name should be worth something. I surprise no one has mention that guy in Topeka that is going bankrupt, owns around 150 properties and i guess hasn't been paying his bills?

You have hit the nail on the head Divemaster. ;)

Nobody wants to buy Hostess for it's management, union labor contracts, factories, equipment or property. :roll:

These are all worthless. :lol:

The only value in Hostess company are the global brand names, Wonder Bread, Twinkies, Ding Dongs & Ho Ho's. :shock:

There's no trade secret or special recipe on how to make delicious bread or snack cakes, but there is value in the brand names Hostess owns. That's why nobody is offering to buy the company now. They are waiting to purchase just the brand names, they don't need the factories, equipment, union labor contracts or management to begin producing and selling the product. I look for Grupo Bimbo to take over, it's owned by a Mexican Billionaire who has quietly bought other leading US brands and shifted production to non-union automated factories. These include Sara Lee, Roman Meal, Mrs. Bairds, Boboli Pizza Crust, Entenmann's Pastry, Oroweat and Thomas English Muffins. The company also produces Wonder Bread under license in Mexico. 8-)

When it's all said and done the new company will be totally non-union. The Teamsters can blame the Bakery & Confectioners union for the loss of jobs. :oops:
