Surprise Announcement Changing Keebler Distribution System Will Destroy 1,200 Jobs

(WASHINGTON) – The following is a statement by Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa:

“On February 8, The Kellogg Company (NYSE: K) announced its short-sighted plan to eliminate their U.S.(Keebler) snacks direct store delivery system across the country which will destroy nearly 1,200 good, Teamster jobs in key markets across the country.  It is an outrage for Kellogg’s – an iconic American company – to turn its back on working families.

Management’s plan to abandon a system virtually overnight that provides excellent customer service and healthy profits for the company is just bad business. We’ve seen time and time again, when companies chase profits at the expense of sales, like Kellogg’s is doing now, workers and customers suffer and shareholders never get what they’re promised.

Teamsters throughout North America are united to fight Kellogg’s attack for as long as it takes.”
