Kellogg’s Reaches 2nd Tentative Agreement Payday Report

The BCTGM announced they had reached another tentative agreement with Kellogg’s. However, the agreement does not eliminate the two-tier wage system that led to the strike but does give workers $1.10 an hour. 

In emails leaked to More Perfect Union, one Kellogg executive brags that the most recent tentative agreement is a win for the company.

“In short… no overall gain for [workers] with 3 more weeks of strike and no income. No ratification bonus,” wrote the executive in a leaked email. 

Earlier this month, Kellogg’s workers voted down a proposed tentative agreement. It’s unclear if this agreement will pass.
