Union Ho Ho’s Get Heave Ho

16 November 2012 @ 14:14

Your unions at work!

From William Teach, we learn:

No more Twinkies, cupcakes (those baseball ones were awesome), cinnamon streusel coffee cakes, Suzy Q’s, donuts, mini muffins, pastries, pies, and sno balls (gross). All gone. And it looks like Hostess really means business…

Hostess is shutting down.

Another grand old American brand destroyed by a union.

From the company’s website statement:

Hostess Brands Inc. today announced that it is winding down operations and has filed a motion with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court seeking permission to close its business and sell its assets, including its iconic brands and facilities. Bakery operations have been suspended at all plants. Delivery of products will continue and Hostess Brands retail stores will remain open for several days in order to sell already-baked products. The Board of Directors authorized the wind down of Hostess Brands to preserve and maximize the value of the estate after one of the Company’s largest unions, the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM), initiated a nationwide strike that crippled the Company’s ability to produce and deliver products at multiple facilities.

William has more details here, including an aggregation of comment from the Rightosphere.

Gone are Ring Dings, Devil Dogs, and Yodels!

The only satisfaction to be gained is that all of those union bastards are now out of jobs. Good.

    Unions exist to get their members as much money as possible.

    And sometimes, they forget some of the pie is better than none.

    Yes, Trumka is a Communist, which reflects on union rank and file members that will allow him to remain.

      Those old union leaders who fought to keep the Communists out of their ranks and supported the Polish Unions must be turning over in their graves.

    I’ll miss zingers. A pox on the Union’s house. They deserve to be kicked to the curb. Now, if we are fortunate, someone will by the brands and make them in right to work states.

    Unions are selfish pigs. They deserve to lose their jobs. But damn, no donuts or cupcakes. That bites! Maybe somebody will buy Hostess and save the company?
