MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com)--
U.S. District Judge Samuel "Hardy" Mays issued an injunction Wednesday ordering Kellogg to bring back the 220 locked-out employees.
Kellogg locked out union workers on October 22, 2013. The company has since filled positions with nonunion workers at a lower pay rate.
Kellogg walked away from the negotiating table months ago, but has now been ordered back to the bargaining table with the worker's union to solve the labor dispute.
Judge Mays wrote in his ruling, "There is reasonable cause to believe that Kellogg has engaged in unfair labor practices and that the injunctive relive requested by Petitioner is just and proper."
This latest order says union workers must be put back to work within five days. Those workers must be returned to their former positions "at the terms and conditions" in effect at the date of the lock out. The order also states that if the workers' positions no longer exists, the workers are to be placed in "equivalent positions... displacing, if necessary, any newly hired or reassigned workers."
Kellogg must report back to the court within 20 days with how it has complied with the order.
If Kellogg isn't paying you what you think you are worth, why not go work some where else? You are not forced to work for Kellogg if you don't want to...
