Kellogg v BCTGM

NLRB issues complaint against Kellogg over Memphis lockout

By Kacey Culliney

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has issued a complaint over Kellogg’s Memphis plant lockout, based on federal charges brought forward by the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco and Grain Millers (BCTGM) union.

Kellogg claims the employment terms at Memphis fall under a local contract that expired in October, 2013 and can be negotiated on, but the BCTGM argues they're covered in a master contract that doesn't expire until 2015 and therefore cannot be negotiated on

By Kacey Culliney

The BCTGM union has accused Kellogg of acting outside the law in its lockout, claiming employment terms held under a master contract can’t be negotiated, but Kellogg says the terms fall under a local, supplemental contract which expired last October.

The BCTGM claims Kellogg cannot negotiate on rates of pay, benefits or work rules on newly hired, full-time staff until 2015 when the master contract expires
