Kellogg said that its "number one priority is to get back to the negotiations table and reach a contract" and it has been forced to continue "operations with other resources" to try and mitigate any supply disruptions.
In order to do so, the company reiterated the terms of its labor contract negotiations with the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM) for four of its ready-to-eat cereal plants.
