EAST LANSING — The following statement can be attributed to MEA President Paula Herbart regarding the strike underway by Kellogg workers in their effort to settle a fair contract:
“As an educator, I know a healthy breakfast is essential to student learning. And I know many breakfasts that fuel our students’ education are made right here in Michigan by Kellogg employees, who deserve fair wages and benefits in exchange for their dedicated service.
“That’s why I’m proud to stand in solidarity with our union brothers and sisters of Local 3-G of the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers Union as they strike and advocate for a fairly-negotiated contract. It’s important for picketing workers to know that MEA and our members around the state support their efforts – we are here for them and their families now and after they achieve a fair settlement.”
