The 11-week strike at Kellogg’s has come to an end after workers approved a contract with the company.

Unionized workers had been on strike since Oct. 5 in Michigan, Nebraska, Pennsylvania and Tennessee, The Washington Post reported.

The union agreed to accept a collective bargaining agreement that had been announced last week.

The Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers’ International Union president Anthony Shelton said the contract makes gains for the 1,400 union workers and has no concessions.

The five-year agreement has wage increases and cost-of-living adjustments the first year, in addition to the expansion of health care and retirement, the Post reported.

A union leader said if an agreement was reached, workers could be back on the job two days after Christmas, Reuters reported. »
