August 2, 2015

We are pleased to announce the members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco and Grain Millers (BCTGM) union have voted to approve a new five-year master contract with Kellogg beginning Oct. 4 that covers our four Ready-To-Eat Cereal plants in Battle Creek, MI; Memphis, TN; Omaha, NE; and Lancaster, PA.

This fair and competitive contract recognizes the important work of our employees and helps to ensure the long-term success of our RTEC plants and our business. It narrows the gap in labor costs at our RTEC locations across our manufacturing network and in the industry.

This contract includes our commitment to keep all four U.S. RTEC plants open for at least the next five years, with the flexibility to optimize production lines as the category continues to evolve.

We are pleased we were able to work with the leadership of BCTGM to agree on a contract that helps ensure our U.S. RTEC plants will be more competitive in our global manufacturing network. For our employees and for this company, we remain committed to the future of this business and focusing together on producing the high-quality, nutritious foods that give people a better start to their day.
