So 76-86% is good? That is under funded. 51 cents on a dollar goes to our employees---that is NOT a good program. With our without Hostess payments, it will run out of money. Buy a book and learn to read please before you talk.

Pension fund is in critical status BECAUSE the company stopped payments July 2011, had they continued the fund would have again had an increase as it did from 2009 of 76% to 86% in 2010. Only BECAUSE of Hostess not paying since July 2011 has the percentage dropped.

The pension is and has been under funded for years---we have been paying for people taht never worked for us and for companies that have long been out of business. The union fatcats are the only ones that are prospering with the MEPP---that is why they want it to continue---they don't care about us, they care about their pockets. What the company is offering is a safer future.

So the company can not afford to pay my pension or buy new equipment, but the give management a bonus. Something not right here! Sounds like the unions have been sold out again. Read the court order, BCT and Teamsters agreed with bonus.

Philly, FMLA did not kill this company, we all know what has happend. Their are people who know how to milk the system but for the most part it helps alot of people who need it . I will give you an example. My wife is self employed . My son needed a operation witch would result in him having his jaw wired shut for six weeks and being home from school . Without the FMLA we would have been screwed....

In the Know, you are in tne know, thats the best post I've ever seen out of Henderson.This company is now in failure mode due to years of corrupt management putting any profit in their pocket and no money back into the company.The production, transport and distribution sections of this company struggle daily with an outmoded,decrepit infrastructure that impairs profitability and safety at every level, yet we are encouraged to work harder and faster to save this shithole.Burn this motherfucker down and remember all the asswipe management fucks that lined their pockets at the expense of you, your families, and your co-workers.They continue to build their "Golden Parachute", while the company illegally withholds pension payments for your retirement. If the Bakers walk, I hope the drivers walk with them cuz we gotta kill it before it breeds!!!

  Comment: Today's labor unions in both the public and the private sectors are a dying breed, folks! Thank's to their own shortcomings and years of orgainized attempts to rape the average American worker and tax the average American taxpayer to death. It was the Teamsters fattest cat named Hoffa that gave UPS the right to form their own retirement plan. Now you see the effects of this "sell-out" to his so-called members, with Hostess Brands. American labor needs to form and to start anew in seeking a united movement where their individual and collective voices will be heard and addressed by their own government. In today's labor unions individual members do not have any rights. The unions today, can lawfully sell you out at the drop of a hat! You have no rights to arbitration and therefore you have no rights to job security. Look at the facts yourselves, folks! Would you as a business owner want either the Teamsters or the Bakers union in your workplace? When you see Teamsters on the picket lines what do you see? Upstanding citizens or thugs and thieves! For the most part, labor unions are not where one wants to raise their families. They are breeding grounds for unsavory individuals who want nothing more than to succeed over your dead and/or broken bodies. Don't become one of their victims by falling for their line of bullshit! You will live better in knowing the truth, for it is the truth that will set your free, in the end.

ill tell you all why hostess went broke...hostess allowed the management at the plants to pick the managers...so they were picked according to friendship and not by the abiliities.if you were not liked you never had a promotion and then thats where they went wrong..the mangers they did pick for the most part had no people skills and some were not trained well and had little talent or communication skills....and this is true all the way to the top...so there you go people..it was not the workers fault...so pat yourselfs on the back...

Depots have no heat, why you ask, because they wont deliver oil unless paid up front. No matter whose to blame one thing is for sure, this company is hemorrhaging money quickly. All this bankruptcy is achieving is a temporary infusion of cash. Things need to change from the top down. Then maybe hostess might survive.

It's official. Memphis lost all Kroger Private Label Bread. We were told today there would be massive layoffs and Path to Market will probably come to end. Hell, all the money they dumped into the Path to Market I'm sure it wasn't making any money anyway. look at all the crap they put in at rivergate from somewhere in europe and you call them people when theres a problem (and there always is) and you can't understand a word they say.

I ll tell you why hostess brands are failing.. we had a reset down in houma and a local walmart. the Hostess guys disappeared leaving the pep farms ,bimbo, and flowers guys to do the rest(they didnt even clean their shelves) when I askd where the hostess guys are, i was told they went eat breakfast. so all of us walked to Mcd s and behold there they were, without a care in the world. we all went back to finish the rest our way. The hostess guys never returned

Routes were ran for many years in Memphis and Little Rock without Private Label so I will run routes again without private label. I actually made just as much money without the private label.

I can see where this is going! Every six months this company will file for bankruptcy, we will eventually be up to chapter 99, each time don't cut the labor force in half, until we're down to one. That would be Andy! Andy will be posting to himself and telling himself how much he sucks. That might be worth hanging around for!!! LOL

The Kroger PL contract was bought soley for the Path to Market launch to show everyone that they had some business. Kroger finally saw what a failure it was. Hostess was never in contention to keep this business. Kroger - as they always do, took Hostess's money and ran with it.

The more things drag on the more business Hostess will lose, the more other bakeries will pick up, leaving the value of Hostess Brands less and less. Bimbo got the hots and hams at Sam's club in CT and elsewhere, drag on and Wonder will have no business. A once great company destroyed by greed on all parts.

I am with you Twinkie the Skid.I have never in my entire life worked at a company with as many disfunctional and looney people.Most do not want their fellow worker to succeed let alone their company.They do not realize how privliged they are to have a job at a major company.They come to work to play mind games at their coworkers expense,and it amuses them.Their mentality is well below the average mind set of the regular american worker.I really can not for the life of me see how this company has lasted as long as it has.If we had a real leader in charge of this nut house,he would do most of you a favor and give you two weeks severance and do what you keep asking for,no pension,no insurance,no job,no future,no house,no car,no family.See how you really will like what you so richly deserve.Standing in the unemployment line.I would give most of you on this site that gift.I can not fathom how you would want to see Wonderbread/Hostess out of business.Why would anyone in their right mind want to deny future generations the opportunity to not only have jobs here,but to deny them the opportunity to taste the great products that were invented by men who gave their time and trouble,to think about a food treat,that would enable a housewife,to supply her family with a simple treat.Do most of you not take the time and sit and think about years gone by,and the simple man,thinking on how to make it easier on his wife.I myself,am amazed,on a husband actually taking his time and inventing such a treat.The twinkie,the ho ho,the suzy Q,sit back just for a moment if you will,and ponder that fact......oh thats right,you are too involved with your ass,and penis and name calling to actually think of something so amazing.Peace out Tony Romano

Only two things will be accomplished with a strike: you lose your job and the teamsters lose your contributions. Go for it if that's what you want. Good luck finding another job. In case you haven't noticed, they are few and far between. Especially ones with unions.

  Comment: Obama has been in office long enough for the general population of these United States, to finally realize that he is in over his head and is incapable of "taking care of business" when it comes to fixing the problems, folks! His appointed Idiots, including his VP Biden, are about as dumb as they come. Throwing good taxpayer dollars at monumental problems, in hoping to fix the particular problems at hand, almost never works quite like using one's brain to first define what the problem(s), if any, really is. And, as a citizen of these same 50 United States right now, you too should have realized that Obama is the problem and the way to fix this is to throw his ass out of office ASAP, while you still have nation, a family and a job, to call your own.

The union is what has screwed this company. All the dues go directly to them, they are the ones who mismanaged the money not Hostess. People on here need to get their facts straight. A strike will never happen, the unions are too greedy for the dues to let it happen.

I'll say it once more, So Cal does not get it's bread from Pomona. The majority comes from Henderson, Nevada. Ask one of your transport drivers when they come in with your bread. In Orange County, it comes in about 11:30 a.m.

updates from the union? HA! that isnt included in the crazy dues we pay. we havent heard shit since that useless phone conference call. remember? the stickers no one got, and the "practice strike" no one executed. the mafia, i mean union could care less what we think. we will not get to vote on anything. they will just say- its the best we could do- and keep collecting dues. they just make fools out of us, and sell us out. and we just keep paying them to fuck us.

Hostess save is in the oven By JOSH KOSMAN Last Updated: 7:29 AM, April 24, 2012 Posted: 12:42 AM, April 24, 2012 Share on emailShare on facebook More Sharing ServicesMore Print EXCLUSIVE A white knight may ride to the rescue of Twinkies. Private-equity firm KPS Capital Partners is one of three investor groups bidding to buy Twinkies maker Hostess Brands out of bankruptcy, The Post has learned. Second-round bids for Hostess, which also makes Wonder Bread and Drake’s snack cakes, are due May 9, three sources said. The talking price is roughly $550 million. All the suitors are private-equity firms specializing in buying troubled companies, although the names of the other two bidding groups could not be learned. Supermarket magnate Ron Burkle, who bid for Hostess in 2008, is not in the mix, sources said. Getty Images In 2009, KPS formed Rochester, NY-based North American Breweries, which owns the Labatt and Genesee beer brands. The interest comes as a surprise since many believed debt-laden Hostess would need to eliminate its pension plans to attract a new investor or buyer. If a suitor steps up soon, it could end a labor dispute that could result in liquidation. Hostess is hoping that a White Plains, NY bankruptcy judge will allow it to scrap its existing collective bargaining agreements with the Teamsters and its bakers’ unions. The Teamsters have threatened to strike if the request is granted. The Teamsters have proposed cuts that could save Hostess around $100 million a year and give a new owner the right to exit any of its multi-employer plans if funding drops below a pre-set level. Still, a new investor would also have to reach an agreement with Hostess’ creditors, who are owed $840 million.

No, the union is not through with you---they will still be there to collect them there dues! But, yes, they did sell you out. Stop wasting your money on union dues and you can use that money to pay the extra on insurance (Good Insurance By The Way).

  Comment: Follow the news where Wonder Bread bakery in Pomona, CA was purchased from Hostess Brands recently by a third-party and is now undergoing a face lift in order to then be resold. We had someone drive by there some 30 days prior to this posting and saw it was all fenced off and closed down completely. The flour silo's were still in place but the train rails leading inside the bakery were rusted and unused. Color this one gone for good, folks!

In our shop we have china men that knock down 100-120 hours a week and say thank you can i have another.............. Cheaper to pay overtime than another two employees.

A hundred of them could do the work of two hundred of any other man or woman......Don't be fooled , in the end we will all get another good fucking. I just got mine today....

Re;..................[[All of you young bucks keep bashing the unions]]..........................For all you dopes sucking the union teat, especially if you're an RSR, how did you like the last contract? Remember that the IBT brought Ripplewood in. The IBT recommended the contract that Ripplewood put forth. They backed the butt-fucking the RSR's got. So tell me. What is the union good for again?

We can't go on strike because that will jeopardize my pension and wages. We can't close the bakery there will be too many people in Emporia hurt financially. Just remember that we have fought hard for your wages. You might have lost your current form of pension but your new pension will be as good if not better than nothing also insurance rates go up so yours should too. We are sorry for this but atleast you get to keep your wages and are not put out on the street.

Nice post Upinya, those who don't study history are doomed to repeat it. Rayburn is a C.P.A. and only cares about numbers, not people and only the numbers he is paid to care about. This company never has nor never will give a shit about it's most valuable asset,the workforce.This is what has put it perpetual epic fail mode.Reducing management by half, restoring pride in the workforce and giving us the tools to do our job might be positive steps to survival, but it is too late.rayburn's lies concerning raises and plans to rebuild are the same lip service hostess C.E.O.s have been spitting out for years,and what changes,( other than more concessions) have you seen ? Burn this motherfucker, the end result will be the same regardless.

All of you young bucks keep bashing the unions and in a few years you'll be able to squat so you can eat your bowl of rice at breakfast, lunch, and dinner if you get a lunch. Remember unions keep non union companies honest. Makes them pay a fare wage and without them there wouldn't be a minimum wage, just keep working asshole.

If you are talking about the salaried production supervisor that spends half his shift in the break room watching the Jazz game,then goes home,I thought his last name was Jones, Dennis Jones.I am sure all the product Bryant Miller used to put in his pick up on frdays was delivered to the old sandy thrift store,sure it was. And every time Bryant was out back fixing the sprinklers for his "sons" landscaping company, he was on break,for sure he was.And all the scrap metal ( racks,load bars, engine blocks etc.) in the back of Bryant or Carlos Kings pick ups never went to the recycling yard. Carlos King only delivered appliances for his other business on his lunch hour, no matter what time of day it was.It is ok if the daytime shipping foreman are in their car napping, they really are'nt missed by the people who actually do the work. The nightshift isn't much better,unless you're in the parking lot/ashtray.The production supervisors chasing anything female upstairs are only a nuisance in comparison.This bakery is sadly a microcosmic model of Hostess as a whole. What many of you don't realize is,strike or not, Hostess will fail, it has been in the business plan all along.Stand up for your rights, kill it before it breeds.

You are they same mo fo that will be crying to YOUR mama for a handout if this company were to fold.It is the person who thinks before he leaps that wins,not some whinning lets strike,lets teach those thiefs a lesson etc etc.Go ahead,go on your strike,sit at home and listen to your spouse cry,go and picket all hours of the day,and see what you get.Dont you get it,THERE IS NO MORE MONEY,THEY SPENT IT ALL,so what are you fighting for.a week vacation?3cents on a dollar?Insuance that is going to cost you more anyway?What do you even HOPE TO CLAIM VICTORY OVER?Do you even know?Oh you want your 114 back.You dumb fuck dont even know what you are fighting for,and your dumber even to know your not going to get it anyway.Its senseless even to try to talk to any of you.The company and the union are in bed together.They will not strike anyway,so get over it.They will not liquidate,there are too many union contracts,we have 3 buyers,when the smoke clears we will be sold,the end.SO WHAT IS THE NEXT FORUM GOING TO BE ABOUT.MOVE TO THE NEXT QUESTION

It does not take a heart surgeon to know that Obama and his cronies are obstructionists who want nothing better than to change America into a European-style nation of lost souls, where a persons gender and race can be changed almost weekly and where truth, hope and personal dignity become dirty words. America is being downgraded as we now speak and should Obama be reelected, it would be the deathblow for all tried and true American's. Mark my words!!! He is BAD NEWS!

Maybe you're too damn ignorant to know what to ask. Or maybe you thought all was well all this time. I don;t know about you but it was obvious to me that they company made NO structural changes to it's business model. Too many managers, too many varieties, too many bakeries that are too old and cannot run full time, thrift stores that sell fresh product thereby competing with it's own RSR's, not combining bread and cake on all routes, too many layers of management the farther you go up the food chain, thrift stores that actually stock 80% product that was not even ours therefore acting as a grocery store, not putting semi drivers on trip pay......................is there anything I missed wise ass? And egos? Are you serious? I think that after working here for 29 years I know WTF I'm talking about. Now if I am wrong, show me how. Snide remarks and vulgar remarks doesn't cut it. All it does is show the poster's ignorance for putting up such childish crap. Stay stupid.

Rayburn is using the favorite propaganda technique of Adolf Hitler and Joeseph Goebbels, "the Big Lie"]]...................................Okay. What is the Big Lie? Both sides agree that a strike kills the company. Both sides know that many IBT and BCT pensions are in deep trouble. In fact, Hall has never disputed that claim. Hall says he has offered a plan to save the company $110,000,000 per year. Yet he doesn't say how. Why? Because it would piss off the members because it would mean more concessions. At least Rayburn has put up specifics. And the IBT has a sordid history of pension fund fraud as well as nefarious loans. Look it up. And Rayburn is using the media? So? Hall has done the same thing. The problem for IBT is Hall comes off looking like an idiot with his typical liberal, class warfare talking points while Rayburn sticks to the issues. So. Where is the Big Lie?

Gee andy,I guess the truth hurts.I may been a little extreme in painting the picture I used to exemplify my point,but I'm sure you got the concept. Rayburn is using the favorite propaganda technique of Adolf Hitler and Joeseph Goebbels, "the Big Lie" which he saturates the media with to hopefully attach a semblance of truth to the target audience. This one battle may determine our legacy to our children,either an America as the founding fathers envisioned it, or a two class,wage slave dictaorship where income determines rights. You can decide on your own, but the struggle will never get any easier than now.The corrupt and inept management that is so deeply intertwined throughout the entire infrastructure of this company that it will be impossible to reform and remove this element in time to save this company. The Unions are not perfect, but they provide the best oppurtunity to preserve the rights of the working man. Be proud, stand tall, stay unified, and burn this motherfucker to the ground.

after just yesterday watching the fox news interview with hostess brands CEO. its to me shows how out of touch they really are. now i am not a union suporter either. but how can management lie so on national news. where is this 3% raise we union members got? its been nothing but loss in wages in the last 2 contracts. plain and simple! cake routes need to work on saturdays. over 70% of business is done on weekends now. we already have combo routes here so thats not an issue. these supers need to be serviced on weekends. most of cake routes are back and going home by 10am on fridays. wednesdays are a joke too for cake routes. when teasing cake guys they say it will never happen!

except for just a few. what happened to actually trying to get honest info on here. mostly now is just nothing but worthless chatter. i could care less about who is blowing who or whos dick and ass is kissing who! we are in a trying period where some of us have to wonder about being screwed by the company or union. you asses who are doing useless bitching have earned a decent paycheck. times are changing folks. we have been screwed by both the unions and the company. still this company hasnt got rid of the management it needs too. we had a mugum come to our terminal within the last 3 days and he never once came out of his office to say anything. not even a friggin hi. they dont even want to look our way. its an insult to work for these idiots. they spend all their time on so called conference calls to accomplish nothing as usual. displays that dont sell! end caps that dont sell! i may b wrong but (without being wise ass) does anyone sell natures pride at full price. here it just came off 4 week special and it just sits now. way too much private label premium bread. allmost everyday the private label section is almost clean . noone is even talking about summer business. also we are talking about the useless info the company and union sending to our homes. its just plain b/s info. simple just plain. same old b/s. not one letter has any REAL news we can use. flip a coin to who you believe! for a company saying they lost $300 million. What amount of a 401 plan are they going to put money into if they have no money to put into. i also expect for the third union contract to lose more money. but these union asses tell you they are intentt on saving union jobs. (when the really mean they need your union dues) but they do have very good medical coverage, dental, vision. so if your asking me do i want to pay $4 like now a week. or like $50 wkly(not counting dental or vision) ITS A NOBRAINER. just my opinion of good and bad

Keep the faith. Genesee/Labaat beer (TCL Co.) is looking to buy us out at $550M. (NYPost.com/business). There are also two other unnamed companies in the hunt. If they are successful,I hope they listen to the employees this time that have suffered unanswered questions,not knowing what's going on etc. They must get rid of EVERY manager,from DM on up. Hopefully we haven't hung in there for nothing. We have nowhere to go but up.

I left a couple of months ago. I got a better job. It is amazing how a good company treats you. The last 30 years I wasted trying to do a good job for people who didn't have a clue of how to run a company. If there is one thing i have learned the last couple of months is you can't be sucsessful running a company from top down. The company I now work for lets us use our own judgement to market our product on a local bassis base on local market conditions, unlike Hostess Brands. Anyway find a job, After all the crap we have put up with there is light at the end of the tunnel. Use all you have learned to make your job a better way to make a living. I only made $4900 the first month but have made more than $16000 so far this month. Good luck in what ever you do. Just have faith in yourself.

This company is never come out of the hell hole it's in. So who gives a damn. Anyone who can't find a job didn't look! Hostess is going to find it difficult to find sales reps to sell their product for the money they want to pay. It might not be in Bakerey goods, but there are sales jobs out there! Look around you'll see you right. If you can't sell yourself then you shouldn't be a sales rep.

Andy, please keep posting. You are one of the only people on here that has any brains. We get a potential buyer to give the union most of what they want and the union makes light of it. Seems like the union just wants our company to go down. I guess it is true...we are having these problems only because of the union. If it wasn't true, the union would at least care. Good luck in the cheese line if you strike. People that work will keep their job because of all the 3rd party help we have waiting...the people who strike will be dismissed...that my friend is written in stone. Again Andy, keep posting...you are becoming my hero. My only suggestion is to stay cool because you are bigger than the crazy posters on here.

So the lesson here boys and girls is not to use the Big 'C' in the mall parking lot....Andy fuck the name callers on here they just don't have enough brains to talk about anything that matters.......

  Comment: Hostess Brand employees have been getting hosed-over by their employer and their so-called labor unions for some 8 years now, folks! They have been getting hosed for so long now, they have become the willing, miss-led by the unknown while doing the impossible, for the ungrateful. In fact, they have been doing the impossible for so long now, they are pre-qualified to do most anything with absolutely nothing! Does this not remind you of the story about early slaves being made to make bricks without straw in Egypt?

But if one of your buddies want to get personal, then I'll play too now and then. Now take your selective outrage and stow it.

Re;...................................[[whoa andy easy bud the c word is that really necessary]].............................Just as necessary as posters talking aboput other poster's mothers or posters sucking dick or posters being gay or posters.............................you gettin' it yet? Tell the others to calm down ref. I give as I get. You think because I call posters a cunt for cracking on my mother I am not calm? Get over yourself. I am quite clam. If the locals idjits really want to have a pissing match, I'll indulge them for a little while. Don't pretend to know me and don't be selective on who you deem worthy of your admonishments. How's that 'calm down'?

Perhaps he will let you lick your own shit off his dick at the end of the day.]]..................................My mistake. I took you for someone with half a brain. Don't worry. It won't happen again. And speaking of ignorance, here you sit sucking IBT's joint after all the wreckage created by Ripplewood's mismanagement. Now for why you are ignorant. The IBT brought Ripplewood in to save us and got a 3% stake in their end. Remember that, sperm-burper? And your boy-toy Hall said that the union offered the company a plan that achieved $110,000,000 in 'savings'. But no specifics. Rayburn published specifics. Not Hall though. Don't you want to know how Hall proposed to 'save' the company that much money per year? Or has Hall's joint banging off your tonsils given you brain damage? Wake the fuck up union suck. There's a damn good reason Hall didn't give specifics. Because they would piss off the members. They would bend you over yet again like last time. Or did you forget about the $7,000 a year haircut the RSR's took last time. And Rayburn? He's bullshitting us? Really dumbfuck? He's lying about many of the pension funds being mismanaged? Get a clue idiot. Many of them ARE mismanaged. Many of them ARE poorly invested. Ours was. Central States is. Would YOU invest in loser funds? Stop at Walmart and get a fuckin' brain......................and wipe the Hall off your lips. As far as the company lying to us and stealing from us..................who the fuck wanted Ripplewood????? Who told the RSR's to take that $7,000 a year beating because Ripplewood and their dream team of former bakery execs would turn us around and you would get your money back? And stealing? Pathetic humps like Hall and all bakery union local leadership kept hiking their pay while the workers got screwed the last 3 years. So tell me asshole. Do you like paying dues to people who lie to you and steal from you while being in cahoots with the company you claim is doing the same thing? You ignant fuck.

wow andy,for you to infer,even due to ignorance, that any statement of mine supports that liar rayburn's manifesto of bullshit proves one thing, you are indeed his personal bitch! Perhaps he will let you lick your own shit off his dick at the end of the day. This company has repeatedly lied and stolen from you, your co-workers and their families,yet you are willing to bend over again for more. The agenda held by this company and it's secured investors is liquidation,they just need a scapegoat. Non-union plants, you should have organized, don't cry about your negligence after the fact, just go home.I am not sure if it is the beaten wife syndrome, the Stockholm syndrome or the " I 'm just a gutless ass-licker syndrome" , but people need to understand that this is just one battle in the war on the middle class. If we don't stand our ground here, we leave the burden to our children and grandchildren to fight a much harder battle due to the gutless ones that won't make a stand now. Are you that scared that you would sell your children's future because your a beaten down pussy? No labor concessions or burn it down, this is the only way

What did we do to you? We are the little guys too and we have devoted our hard work to supporting the RSR's. Been drummed into me since day one that we are here to support you. Why are you so willing to throw us under the bus?

I NEVER saw a company where people just picked up the phone, said "im sick FMLA" and could care less about the people on the job ! At least in Philly they got away with horrible attendance daily ! And then the poor bastard who comes to work catches the shit while he tries his best to do 3 jobs ! Its no Wonder and its no Wonder why nobody wants us !

Its tragic that some of you cant see whats really going on. The companys proposal says it will move employees to safer pension funds. The union is fighting it with everything they got. Anyone want to take a guess why?.................One of the worst funds out there is central states. Can anyone guess what fund most of the people on teamsters payroll (reps, secretarys, presidents) are in???...........Yep you guessed it.. Central States. If hostess gets out of that fund and some of the others, what happens to the unions employees pension funds?.....Insolvancy. See the picture here: Hostess wants concessions,(work rule changes, 100 dollar stops, combo routes, pensions and health care. and Teamsters didnt bat an eye at anything but the pensions.

This company and most of it's secured investors want to liquidate, they are simply trying to make labor the scapegoat ( the I.B.C. way) and build up whatever value is left for the liquidation.Better to go out like a man than as somebody's bitch.

Re;.................[[. id say the latter is true he has no clue.the waste up here is incredible AND THE COMPANY SEEMS TO DO NOTHING ABOUT IT.]]........................Up until about say 8 years ago, we would send three semis with maybe 12 racks of product on each one to the same region instead of 36 racks on one 48-footer using one driver. That would mean fuel and tolls for three runs where one would suffice. I would flat out ask the supervisor 'why do you do that?' And he would tell me that they had to do something to fill out their shifts. And he was right. Wasn't his call that they were overstaffed. It was probably KC not knowing or caring about how much money we were pissing away. It's the same mindset in keeping part-time bakeries open. If a bakery has two lines and fills much of that time making product for other plants, then you do not need them to be making product. Here at Hodgkins the loons at the top decided about 10 years ago to have other bakeries make our product and ship it to us in order to keep them running. We had no problem making the product. But someone up top decided that it's a good idea to take product from us, have another bakery make it, then pay a driver as well as pay for fuel to bring is to us. Our business model looks like the model of how to run a welfare state. Our bakery opened in 1981 in order to close three other ones in the region. We are probably running at 70% capacity thanks to the clowns in KC in spite of the fact that they built Hodgkins to do the work of three bakeries.

But if your fund is poorly managed and lost big money the last few years and had to be adjusted.....like ours, what's the difference?

Ya like your pension cut in half? And you want unemployment? How about that lovely COBRA plan? Oh and BTW, how many of you have ANY skills outside of pushing bread racks around?

remember, pensions are backed by trhe government based on the amount of years you worked..its about 32.75 dollars for every year...so if you worked 30 years it would be about 980..00 dollars a month....as far sa striking goes you have 75 weeks of unemployment to collect if fired because of plant closures..there is also welfare and medicare for your sick family members...you can also get monies and help through HRDC and other government agencies......so.........strike people strike........

im sorry andy i'll explain better. they bring trailers from biddeford and drop in mass then another driver takes it to its destination. when it can be done from biddeford. and they send drivers from mass to biddeford to pick uploads for what reason is beyond everyone. and deliver it when it can be done from here. causing layoffs at biddeford and hiring in mass. WTF

Re;..............................[[What about all the stolen revenue from the pension plan andy.Their not going anywhere their lying again.]].................................Stolen? It was put in risky investments by our fund manager here in local 734. How do we know? Because I asked for Series 5500 Forms from our local under the FOIA for the years 2008-2010. They sent them. Anyone can ask for them. They tell you specifically what your pension money goes into. Our reckless fund manager stayed aggressive just like he told me he would when I asked him why he wouldn't go conservative back in 2008. And the 5500 proved it. Our fund lost tens of millions of dollars for about 5 quarters thanks to our manager's decisions. Why the hell would you put our pension money into companies that invest venture capital? Or real estate?

Here's the pension offer.....................Hostess Will Still Provide You With G od Pensions, From Financially Stable Pension Plans! Hostess believes that it cannot attract new financmg with the current MEPPs in place. However, our new pension proposal will not only put Hostess in a stronger position to secure new financing required to emerge from Chapter 11, it will also provide employees a good and more secure retirement savings program. a Hostess will cease contributions to financially unstable MEPPs, but it will not abandon all MEPPs. No contributions will be made to the MEPPs this year. • However, during the next year, but no later than January 1, 2013, Hostess will work with a few financially stable MEPPs in targeted regions to allow Hostess to re-enter as a new contributing employer, and allow you as employees to begin earning pensions from these MEPP pension funds. Unlike many of the current MEPPs, these targeted MEPPs are financially stable and well funded. These MEPPs do not present a major risk of insolvency down the road. Your future pension will be much safer. Hostess will be considered a new employer without prior contribution history or obligations. Hostess will increase its contributions during the course of three years. m In case Hostess is unable to re-enter one of the targeted MEPPs, it will establish for you a single-employer defined benefit plan (DB) and a single employer defined contribution plan (DC). The DB plan will provide a fixed, basic pension for you at normal retirement. The pensions you earn under the DB plan will be guaranteed by the federal government under the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation. This guarantee is greater than the guarantee provided to the unhealthy MEPP plans from which many of you now earn pensions. • The DC plan will supplement the pension offered by the DB plan, and will be structured as a profit-share, with Hostess making contributions on your behalf. It will also have a 401(k) feature to allow for tax-free contributions in addition to the contributions made by the Company. • All participants in these plans will be 100% vested after three years of service, and all years of service prior to Jan. 2013 will be taken into account in determining years of vested service. • Newly hired employees and employees not covered by any MEPP will participate in the 401(k) plan like all management and non-represented employees. In summary, we believe these are pension plans that will be secure and add, in a fair way, to your retirement income.

The webmaster is Bernard Bush; see who the letter from I.B.C. is addressed to. I must say for a man who is against discrimination he sure does tolerate it his own board. This company has not a chance in hell of surviving. It's not only mismanagement of funds but the back log of lawsuits it must face when it does come back out of bankruptcy. It's so sad the unions and their members have done anything they can to keep this place afloat, but it's just not going to happen folks. I deepest appologies to every loyal hard working employee who stuck it out.

No, it is not true. There will NOT be a strike tonight or ever. The deal has been sealed and the unions have sold the workers out to save jobs and continue to collect dues. If you don't like the outcome, you can quit, but there will NOT be a strike.

It was 23 years ago I was employed by Drake Bakeries, 10 years later we were bought out by Hostess (IBC). I have 22 yrs experience in the cake business, 17 of them as a route driver and 5 as a branch manager. A yr ago they walked me out the door, for a reason that was happening for the last 23 yrs with all other management. After I was left go I bought a tastykake route, last week we had a mtg. and we were told we were taking the Hostess space in all the Weis Markets. At the end of the month they are losing another major account in this area and rumor on the street is that Flowers Baking is going to buy the Drakes portion. Its ironic that I started with Drakes 23 yrs ago and was left go by Hostess and now employed by Tastykake (Flowers Baking) and I'll be delivering Drakes within the year.

Hey Old Timer, Your off your rocker. Its not easy living day after day not knowing what this piece of shit company will do next. You makje it sound like we owe these people our lives for letting us work for them. I along with 99% of us have worked for years and given our lives to this place so we could give our familys a good life, for that we are grateful. Nothing is free and this company dam sure never gave us anything that we did not have to fight for and now they are slowly molking us dry. you may think that is all right but the majority of us are willing to fight to keep what we and the ones before us have fought for over the years!

First of all may I say this,IF you had a footlong,you wouldnt be working here.Second,if you had a footlong you wouldnt be telling everyone on here who could give a crap,unless of course you are alittle on the sweet side,Third,a thrift store manager works just as hard as any manager out there,we order,we clean,we go through route returns,we crawl on the floor for those hard to get route returns,we mop,clean the bathrooms,pull in the fresh delivery,pull those blasted trays out those little holes of a rack,stack the racks,pull them into the garage,pull the pallots of swc in the stockroom,unload the stock,put the stock out,stock the fresh delivery on the shelves all while waiting on customers,because we dont get the necessary help we need anymore,and do it while smiling,we help out little old men and women with their grogerys,we make schedules,trouble shoot problems with workers,meet with district managers as well as union reps,go get change and money orders,and this is just in one day.At the end of the week we do all end of week reports,all while still having no one to help us out.Sometimes not even getting a new worker into the afternoon.And smile,always smile.Thrift store managers are the face of this company,if you are a good manager,and you do not have the product,you encourage them to go to the neighborhood store to pay full price for it so you can help your fellow route worker.So dont tell me we should be closed.We should be used more that would benefit the company more.Taste testing new products with our customers.Then passing them over to you for full price.So keep your uneducated thoughts to yourself,when you know what you are talking about please still refrain,I dont like the tone of your comment.We are here to better serve the company,not better serve ourselves.

For the people who post on this dumb ass site, 60% don't work for Hostess 20% don't do anything at work until they get home then they come on the site and bash the company but come Friday they have their hands out for a check go figure if it so bad move on and get your money somewhere else. Then there is the 20% that actually work and care about the company and their future with hostess to you I solute cause you are the one's who come in and do all that is required on the market with being told or asked. they know what is going on with their duties of their jobs day in and day out yesssss 7 days a week dedicaded. I expect a response from the one's who aren't worth a crap and need to move on, but once again those are the ones who have their hands out on Friday.

If you strike, you lose your job. So just save the company and everyone else your bs, just quit. If it is as bad as everyone says it's, just quit!! I am pretty sure nobody is holding a gun to your head and making you come to work each day. Something must be keeping you coming back each day. Wonder is it's because you know you can't make it anywhere else. If you spent all that energy selling product that hall put into complaining, you could probably be retired by now. How about some fresh bread on shelf for once!!!!

its part of the never ending story about hostess brands. WHO GOT 3%? rayburn needs to clarify that statement. or fox news should check into what actually and what is just spouting off. lets see now! hall was on current tv. that segment was brought to you by TEAMSTERS OF AMERICA. SO YOU CAN THROW IT OUT AS IT IS ALL UNION CHATTER. those with a clear brain can tell fox moderator is anti union. so both of those interviews wash each other out. call it a tie. my concern is. if company anything is started. then what do we need the union for if we had comapny insurance! may i ask what 401? these asses said they lost over 00 million dollars last year. there are combo routes already here and pull forwards are the same guy for both cake and bread. it is a sad state of affairs we are in people! strike and they close. let them stay running the company this way and we will not survive anyway! we are screwed either way. have no answer. i know i am tried of wondering every few months if we are going to have a job.

I have heard different areas get paid different commissions . In ohio our base is 184.00 plus 9%,our competitors are now at 310.00 base plus 9% so we are not ahead or even close to the market. If anyone wants to reply what is your base and commission and what area.

I googled Greg Rayburn. He has been CEO for alot of companies. All he cares about is himself and a pay check. How long will he stay? What does he know about the bread & snack cake business?Diddly squat. Just a numbers guy. The more numbers he came take from us and put in his own back pocket. Just like the rest of those crooks. Put him on a route truck for 60 hours a week....no lunch, no break. Waking up at 1:30 AM. Saying by to your family. Coming home too tired to play catch with your kids. Or grumpy. We give are product to Walmart so they make a profit while we go under. Just raise to price to Walmart. We would a make a profit and not lose millions. Don't let Walmart set pricing. This is a simple business ...after 20 years employed here. All I have seen is how to cut down service. Pull out of stops. I have never seen anyone going out to build business...

Who are the union members that have gotten a 3% raise the last three years that Greg Rayburn was talking about on fox news? I work in Ohio and have not had a raise for what is now heading for 10 years,in fact we gave up 120 a week two years ago. So did the union get raises in some areas and not in other ?

Have you been paying attention to the 1113 hearings? Did you not hear the union leadership AGREE that a strike kills the company? So after hearing that, what dumb fuck would STILL want to strike? You ignorant sac of stupid. And 'stick together'? Why the hell would I stand side-by-side with some fuckin' idiot who KNOWS a strike ends our jobs when it is not necessary? I never bought into this 'union brotherhood' crap. You stand or fall on your own pal. And if possible, you think for yourself also. Yes. You reap what you sow. And guess what Ballsac? If you strike, you're done. And like it or not Ballsac, Rayburn is telling it like it is. This is our second BK in 7 years. No one wants to spend a dime on us with those pension costs. Fact. And the sooner you man up and accept that, the sooner you will understand the reality of our situation. Have you read the company proposal? A 401k which YOU control and a match by the company. Or are you afraid to manage your own money? Or don't you know how. Bottom line. I don't stand with fools and idiots. I don't need some fat assed union rep from the IBT telling me to strike knowing full well it kills the company when it does not need to happen. Get a fuckin' set and think for yourself.

Excuse my spelling, I worked for IBC (hostess) for 23 years left last sept when they suspended the pension and i could see they were headed for backrupt agian.worked at sales for awhile. then an offer came in to go back in the baking biz .I am thrill to be back in what i know best. they pay $450 base pius 8% com wow and they are dedt free. I am not bragging just pointing out that if a company is ran right it can pay there salesmen an living wage.Its not about pension fund or high bases its about corp level getting to big making huge mistakes.moving headoffice to irving and now we have empty offices just sitting in KC. Pay raises ect. hiring people that know nothing about the bread biz,when they already had a huge pool of great people already working there.which i witness many of them let go an are now working for other baking companys.Union people hold your ground stay united dont let anybody say it your union causing them to go under its there fault for the years of mis manegment. If you give in it will have an ripple effect thur the whole industrie.It doesnt take a rocket sicentest to realize all you need is a great product,service, and support,give the cosumer what they want and keep up with the trends you dont always have to lead just react fast. My thought on this is no matter how you vote they will still sell off the company if you give in they just get more money out it and you.Remenber you are own by investers thats what they do. So stay united and strong.

Hey, anonymous, put your money where your mouth is. Don't retire. Stick around and fight for your union brothers. I don't see you with a sign walking the line. These Teamsters have lost everything since they put in the "no strike no lockout" clause in their contract. Guess what generation that came from. You guessed it the Baby Boomers. You Baby Boomers rode off the backs of your parents. You all got your jobs because of nepotism and what your called your "birth right". When the new generation wants to revolt you call them "lazy and stupid". I would reverse that upon your generation, you are the ones who empowered companies and unions to screw the workers.

  Comment: Here is what is going to happen.. the union and company will come to some agreement and the rank and file will have no say in it. Then, the route cutting , headcount reduction and territory abandonment will begin. The math is simple: $ value of lost business during this bankruptcy divided by 10,000 = how many routes to cut, depots to close or sales territories to abandon. Lay offs will follow and those left will have large, long, unrunnable routes with God knows what brands left on it, reduced space in the market and fewer managers to bitch to about it. Sound familiar ?

If Hostess is to survive Transport will be outsourced to Great Wide, like it did in Florida, or a "comparable" common carrier. Route sales will drop to an average of $15 per hour with all hours and commission combined. I would guess less, but I am giving you guys the benefit of the doubt. Insurance costs will climb and coverage will decrease. Dues will remain or go up. 401k with no match or investment. Your hours worked will increase more, since they will not pay for any overttime. And the saddest part is all the babyboomers reaped their rewards and are scurrying like cockroaches when the lights come on. They run to retire and look back at the younger guys, whom are going to get the 401k with no match, and say "oh well, I got mine." This is the definition of a true coward. The sad thing is there are a lot of cowards in the Teamsters and it's rank and file. Now, please check my spelling and punctuation.

I can make the same money I am now working in a factory someplace where I wont be working in the snow, rain, and when its 100 degrees outside. And work normal hours and have both weekend days off. The reason I was working for Hostess was a pension. I guess the pension is going to be gone, so there is no reason to stay here anymore.

It's looking a lot like they're trying to sell routes in the near future. Think about it. No pension but they will give you a 401(k), all the route trucks have to be replaced, they cut back on mechanics and parts and they dropped all the stops that did under $50. Just something to think about.

This is really not about the pensions. Hostess just knows some are in bad shape, defering attention away from what is really just another money grab. Hostess just don't want to pay the $$ into it. They just want to pay $500 toward a 401k instead of the $5000 pension. This is all about the money, not them suddenly caring about our well being. This is all about them taking another $100 a week from us.

Hostess Brands has made numerous errors in running this company, the pay raises for top tier execs were no doubt an attempt to loot the company. My point is the only way that Hostess can survive is to get relief from the pensions of non-Hostess employees. They will make a deal on that basis alone. It's all water under the bridge for both sides now. The finger pointing is a waste of time. Make a deal or deal with life as an unemployeed, uninsured individual.

Judge: Union Stance On Pensions Threatens Hostess Restructuring Rachel Feintzeig April 19, 2012 (c) 2012 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. The judge charged with determining whether Hostess Brands Inc. can shed its labor deals in bankruptcy Thursday said union demands about the pension plans could "dramatically" reduce the value of the company or potentially wreck Hostess's search for fresh capital. Judge Robert Drain of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in White Plains, N.Y., said that, while he understands there is an "intangible psychological value" for union employees to remain in multi-employer pension plans that are in danger of insolvency in the decades to come, the result would be a "tax" on the company and its investment process "that's concerning." Getty Images Paul J. Richards "It's an uncertainty tax, it's a risk tax, but ultimately it's a tax on the ability to raise capital," Drain said. Later, he added, "if the union is so insistent on this point that the investors walk away, that would be a tragedy, I think." Many of the multi-employer pension plans in which the Teamsters union is intent on remaining are "in serious financial trouble," Drain noted, risk that would surely bubble over into Hostess's search for investors to fund its reorganization. If the union still refuses to budge on the matter, Drain said the additional risk with which it is insisting to saddle the company should be balanced out by other portions of the union's labor-deal proposal, such as the union's claim to equity in the company. Thus, the impact of the pension plan could be to depress the value of the company's equity as well as cripple Hostess in other ways. "If push comes to shove, even if it will either kill a deal or so hamstring a deal [that] the company will come out coughing or stumbling, the union won't consider alternatives to, in essence, staying in the most-troubled funds, and that's a problem," Drain said, summarizing the point he considered "most persuasive" in Hostess's case. "I'm not ruling that but that is a concern." Drain's comments came on the third day of a marathon Hostess hearing, the centerpiece of which is the trial over the collective-bargaining agreements that the maker of Twinkies and Wonder Bread wants to unload during its second trip through bankruptcy in recent years. Thursday was the Teamsters union's first day to make its case, and the union kicked off by placing an employee, Daniel Wrenn, on the witness stand. Wrenn testified that he, like a majority of Teamster Hostess employees, had voted to authorize a strike and was still committed to striking if the court sided with the company in the trial. The union's next witness, Harry Wilson, chief executive of boutique restructuring firm Maeva Group and a member of the government's auto task force in 2009, said he also would recommend striking over the differences between the union's most-recent proposal, made Sunday, and the company's final proposal, made Saturday. In "the company's proposal, there is nothing for the benefit of the members other than a series of asks that don't do anything to preserve and correct the mistakes of the company that led us to this second Chapter 11," Wilson said. "On that basis, I think the members' investment...would be effectively in vain." Drain said he understood Wilson's sentiment but "would disagree with it because of the consequences." Witnesses from both sides have testified that Hostess would be forced to immediately liquidate if its unions went forward with a strike. The consequences of Drain's ruling thus could mean life or death for the company, an implication of which the judge seemed well aware on Wednesday when he urged the parties to consider whether they really wanted him to make a decision as early as Thursday or Tuesday. "I think both sides are showing now that it's not my way or the highway on the pension-plan issue," he said. In its most-recent proposal, Hostess agreed to remain in two, more-stable pension plans, as opposed to insisting that it exit all of them, and the union reworked its proposal to incorporate more protections against the risks identified by the company. Drain suggested that perhaps Hostess and the union would want him to delay his ruling so that they could continue with negotiations, especially against the backdrop of the investor process. The next round of bids from three remaining potential investors is due May 9. "There's things that you need to flush out and the investors' input would be helpful there," Drain said. Still, he cautioned Thursday that this path could be "risky" if the union refused to veer from its position on the pension plans and pushed some investors away.

Hostess Brands Inc., the maker of Twinkies and Wonder Bread, has won more time to bake up a reorganization plan and solicit acceptances without competition. Judge Robert D. Drain of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York in White Plains on Tuesday, April 17, approved a 90-day extension of the company's exclusive right to file a plan and solicit acceptances to it, to Aug. 8 and Oct. 7, respectively, a company spokesman said. Before the extension was granted, the Irving, Texas, debtor had until May 10 to file a plan and until July 9 to solicit acceptances. Hostess in court papers April 3 said it needed more time because it was still negotiating with its unions on new collective-bargaining agreements. Hostess didn't expect a decision on its request to terminate the current CBAs before its exclusivity was set to run out. A trial on the issue began Tuesday and extended into Thursday, with the unions calling witnesses to testify Thursday, the company spokesman said. Hostess also said it needed time to complete a search for an investor to finance its emergence from Chapter 11. Some 14 parties have executed confidentiality agreements, and interested investors submitted a first round of proposals on Feb. 27. Hostess expects a second round during the week of May 7. The debtor on Monday, arguing in support of its exclusivity motion, said its two key unions -- the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union -- each seemed to favor a different potential investor, which led it to believe the loss of exclusivity could result in several plans -- its own, one from each of the unions and one from lenders. "As the debtors have made substantial progress in moving toward a plan thus far, there is no need to invite such potential chaos, heightened acrimony among the creditors and excessive fees," Hostess asserted. Finally, the debtor said it was pursuing a "fail-safe" sale process in case it fails to modify the CBAs. The company has said such a result would force its liquidation. Hostess' official committee of unsecured creditors had opposed an exclusivity extension, asserting the company was headed for a liquidation. The committee cited a lack of progress in labor negotiations; Hostess' failure to share with the committee a plan or bidding procedures; and a provision that requires potential investors to deal only with the debtor. Hostess refuted the arguments, asserting the committee "turns a blind eye to the substantial progress made by the debtors in these cases in only three months." Hostess filed for Chapter 11 for the second time in less than eight years on Jan. 11 because of sliding financial performance, strained liquidity, excessive debt, aging infrastructure and a need to lower labor and legacy costs.

I don't understand what all the fuss is about.....We all know wahts going to happen. The contarcts will be voided. The Union will tell us they did everything they could, but it's done. We will lose our pensions and go on the company 401k at a much less amount. We will lose most beneits and pay much for for what we get. All the contract language that the company wants changed will be changed. We will take more pay cuts, and then we will get a 2% or 3% raise in 3 or 4 years and the Union will say "look, we got you a raise". That how it will be and THATS THAT. Nothing else will change and we wuill be miserable until we laeve.

I've been with Hostess in senior management for 20+ years and have been on this site checking for employees coments. What i have found is that all you Union employees are so intelligant and truthful. You guys are the best. All the other posters are obviously management spreading nothing but lies.

The guy on Fox is one of the biggest anti UNION reporters they have..... Not too mention FOX Businees is a anti UNION NETWORK. When they say fair and balanced the are as full of shit as Rayburn is!!! So Rayburn says we have got 9% raise in the last three years??? That would be close to three grand at the least for each one of us! Maybe they are putting it into a special savings acount for us LOL

I have been a non union rsr for Hostess for 15 + years... Infact I'm on the job as we speak.. waiting to get checked in by the receiver.. over the past several days I've been checking this message board to see if I can get an ounce of intelligent info about the status of our company.. and unfortunately, the only info I've really found is that you union employees are a bunch of crying ass pussies.. "I can't do this..I wont do that.. union rules say I don't have too.." seriously? What ever happened to the phrase "hard working Americans?" Cus you wont find many on here.. if y'all worked half as much as you cry... The company would be in a lot better position.. if you want something for nothing... Get on welfare... Pull the thumbs outta your mouths.. suck my dick.. and quit yer bitching... Over the 15 years I've been wih this company.. I've made a reasonable living.. I've supported my family.. bought a modest house..put kids through college.. done all of this without union b.s. if y'all don't like your jobs.. fuckin quit... Go find a better one.. shouldn't be that hard if y'all believe your as good as you think you are.. but why make the rest of us have to wade around in your bullshit? One day.. if I feel this job ain't worth it anymore... Ill leave too.. but atleast that way I have a choice... And my livelyhood is not in jeapordy because of a bunch of crying ass good for nothing.. cock sucking bitches like you fuckin union employees are... So have a coke and a smile.. stick a twinkie up your ass.. and have a nice day fuck sticks!

The big picture in all of this is the continuing attempt to dismantle America's middle class.Those of you that whine about your kids or bills were warned like everybody else. The fact that you did not prepare and now want to perpetuate the ongoing criminal activities of management makes you an accesory to their crimes.You would sell your children's future to soothe your fears of this moment.These people stole from you, your family and your co-workers and will continue to do so if they can. This country was founded by Insurrection and the founding fathers made it a means of guaranteeing the rights of all class of citizens.Unity is our strength. Viva le Insurrection and LET THE BODIES HIT THE FLOOR...LET THE MOTHERFUCKER BURN!!!

  Comment: Today's meeting with the Teamsters and Hostess's top management individuals ended with Hostess's top-dog (Mr. R) balking first at the thought of his unionized workforce choosing to strike and take no prisoners! If you want to read where this case is going then look at the Teamsters Objections on this website and log onto it. It's some 72 pages long but it speaks volumes on case law when it come to Hostess needing to repudiate their work agreements. In other words Hostess conceded they would not survive a strike by their two largest unions and that's why they asked Judge Drain for a 90 day extension before he will then announce his decision on this same issue. Now we know why the Teamsters were waiting, folks. To give Hostess just enough rope to hang themselves in our nations bankruptcy courts! Over 40 years of case law precedent is pretty daunting to overcome, even by our present bankruptcy courts today.

Re; Anus from Hodgkins says........................[[first of all andy i was right , you are gay,]]..........Anus projects.................[[when you use the word rich thats all i need to know]]..................................Know what? .................[[2nd dont matter everyone that stays with this company will have more cuts in 3 more years]]...........................you may be right Anus, you may also be wrong.........................[[.it will not end , rsrs will always be at fault so dont strike]]..........................listen up Anus. The ONLY reason that I and others will not walk is because it will get you nothing, nothing at all..........................[[ ,i bet you never thought thay would be at this again]]....................................guess again Anus. We never came out of BK the first time. And try to remember who found our savior Ripplewood to begin with. The IBT. So for all you IBT lap dogs, when Ken Hall tells the press 'we are walking', remember that THEY are the phriggin' mental midgets who found our present dimwit owners that put us in this position. And who the hell is Hall? Does he tell YOU what you will or will not do? You punk for him Anus? Phuck Hall and the IBT. They have screwed over our pension and have helped put us where we are now. The POS's have a 3% stake of Ripplewood's end. Did you know that Anus? So tell me ANUS? How do you represent the owners AND the members at the same time? IBT's leaders still have been giving themselves raises since the first BK Anus. But they're going to tell you to set up a picket line for no reason? Anyone who does that based on IBT's pissing match with Rayburn is a phlucking fool. So tell me Anus. If you have three kids, a house note and two car notes, whaddya tell your family when you suck Hall's joint and stand on a picket line? WHY are you doing it? What will be gained? Convince YOURSELF, not me, that something will be gained for you and your family by standing on the curb with a stupid sign in your hand. This is ch 22 Anus. If you believe nothing else Rayburn has said do believe this. If there is a work stoppage, there WILL be ch 7. So all you flat heads who will have no income for your family in THIS economy and probably little if any skills, think first. No I will wait for the local fisty boys to respond with their ignorant bilge.

Some of you RSR's must not realize that back when all of us took the $110 off of the base and and additional $10 for insurance that the hourly employess, that are union, only got a $10 a week pay cut. Maybe they are not going after the RSR's money and are trying to get more out of those hourly employess who never really got their fair pay cut.....just a thought

All you do is complain and spread rumors on this site. Half of you are probably already on unemployment. Get a life or start posting fact not fiction.

The company is currently considering a plan under which they will produce a 19 year supply of Twinkies (which never mold btw) they will rent a warehouse and will subsequently lay off all production people, they will be ordered over the internet and mailed to you, so no more need for RSR's. The Teamsters will file a lawsuit 1 year after all this happens; because it takes those stupid fucks that long to realize there is a problem.

The Teamsters might give them notice but that doesn't necessarily mean that they'll strike right away.It could be sometime before they go down that road. Keep your eye on the teamster / hostess website.

Bankruptcy Court Hearing Update For April 18 April 18, 2012 At today's hearing, which started at 9 a.m., the company presented its case and called five witnesses. The first witness was new CEO Greg Rayburn, who was on the stand under direct and cross examination for two and a half hours. Following Rayburn was the company's expert witness on bargaining unit compensation, Dr. Johnson, and Hostess' Vice President of Labor Relations Jeff Parlato, which lasted until 1 p.m. After a one hour lunch break, the company's case resumed with expert testimony from a pension actuary, Hofing, and lead investment banker, Michael Kramer of Perrela Weinberg. The company wrapped up its case around 5 p.m. Judge Drain continued to urge the parties to meet to resolve their issues. The Union will present its case beginning at 9 a.m. tomorrow.

I can't believe how stupid most of you are. Striking only leaves one option, While it may be a terrible job, at least it will still give you a paycheck.All this talk about growing some balls, I'd rather be smart, typical teamster bs, ask why didn't we strike back in August like we should have. Answer your teamster leadership had no balls, but they will still have a paycheck when we are all done. The leadership of both the company, and teamsters are complete idiots

I have a great idea. Let's go out on strike in a shitty economy where jobs are very hard to come by. The union does not give a fuck about any of us. They are worried about losing control of the pension and the union dues they will be losing. Ask them for a job if the company shuts its doors and they will not know who you are.

i have read these comments for the last couple of days been with the company for 24 years went though all the cuts ,route changes,penison changes,screw by mangement too but to read these I was wondering if you was saying fuck the company each week when you was putting your check in the bank or using your insurance whenever you needed to .try to your unempolment card when you go to the drs offiice also you need to check with your state since you are refusing to work whether you can even draw unempolment. so just remember your weekly pay check is more than your unempolment check ,I work 50-60 hours a week also..............

Every job is hard.That is why they call it a job.I am not a depot route supervisor.So check that off your list.I am a hard working person that works hard wherever I work.It is my work ethic,besides,I want the next generation to be able to eat this product and enjoy it,like when i was a kid.Kids enjoy that new treat.Sure,maybe we are sick of it,and think its crap,but remember that first bite of a hostess cupcake?That was a treat in my day.You NEVER got that.Some of you are young and always got to eat one,not me,it had to be a damn holiday to receive one.That is why I say,Hostessbrands is not going under.It morally CAN NOT.The judges and attorney's will not let it happen.If I could bet you I would.When this whole thing is over,you will see.Expect the worse,and hope for the best.I always works,and you my friends will work,if you are a good loyal worker,if not,your ass is outa here.You can take that to the bank my friend.peace out.

The company's position that they are in this situation because of high labor costs is bullshit. In California, Oroweat makes $600.00 a week base and 8.5% commission. On top of that, they don't have to contribute towards their health and welfare. It seems to me that Rayburn should do a little more homework when making these statements.

Have to stand behind the truck and pull product during all types of weather conditions. Torrential rain , searing heat, high winds, and the guys n gals up north that have to deal with snow! As far as dropping off you have to wait to get checked in rotate n merchadise product and pull credits. U must be a supervisor.

Orlando,they already know what is going to happen.They are just going through the motions.Havent you ever went to court??I have had 2 Federal court escapades and THEY the federal judges and the lawyers on both sides always knew the score before we even went into the court.It stinks,and sucks,and guess who was skrewed?? You guessed it me.And I payed 50 thousand dollars for NOTHING.Hell,I could have gotten what they paid me without two teams of lawyers.They already know.This company is going nowhere.Sit back and enjoy the ride.Live and Learn you all of you are about to be schooled.

GO BACK TO THE OLD SCHOOL WAYS,KEEP IT SIMPLE,DONT FEEL THE WORLD OWES YOU ANYTHING.GO TO WORK,DO YOUR JOB,SAVE YOUR MONEY,TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS.Leave the bullshit to the bullshiters.Its their job,that is what they do best,you do what you do best.Drive around in a truck and drop off bread and cake.How much money do you really think that is worth.The high rollin times are over kids.Think about what you really do all day.You are your own boss,you are out in the open air dropping off shit.Get a life.

I didn't say he would rule in May asshat. I said he has until May to issue a ruling. Of course if he has already made up his mind prior to the trial beginning then ur correct. I would be surprised if he would issue a ruling today because of all of the court docs and evidence which must be examined. Just my opinion.

It's really nice for some of you guys to think the union is going to back you up,but the truth of the matter is we are not going to strike,It would have us lose too much money,the union would have to pay out too much money to all of the members,and the company itself would lose money as well as faith from the consumer,which we have already.We can not lose more.We will not strike.And all of you should not keep stating that.It is not morally right.This is all about the pensions,and the 401k,and the work contracts,they have to be changed to keep up with the times.All contracts are from the 80's.They all need to be revamped.Again,we will not strike.To all of you airheads,AGAIN WE WILL NOT STRIKE.

Read the news articles. The trial lasts 2 days and the judge has until May to issue a ruling. We won't know anything until court ajourns today, if then. . Unless we have a Blogger in the courtroom. Watch n wait.

First thing out of the gate in court today and Hostess moves to void contracts.....hope union lawyers don't look like the overly well fed f##ks they trot out in all these videos. Need to look lean and hungary like the routeman who works long hours sick and exhausted with no overtime....oh, that's just in the south, right?
