Washington, D.C. – President Joe Biden is upset with the Kellogg company after announcing it is replacing striking workers who turned down the latest contract offer from the union.

“I am deeply troubled by reports of Kellogg’s plans to permanently replace striking workers. Permanently replacing striking workers is an existential attack on the union and its members’ jobs and livelihoods. I strongly support legislation that would ban that practice,” Biden said.

On the other hand, Joe Biden’s workplace vaccine mandate fully supports firing doctors, nurses, cops, firefighters and teachers who worked throughout the entire pandemic, with public contact rates and in close order with others during the entire bulk of the 2020-21 pandemic, prior to vaccinations being available.

After being asked to work under extremely dangerous conditions during the pandemic in the pre-vaccine era, those workers are being threatened with losing their jobs, just months after being declared heroes for their sacrifices during the pandemic. Many in those fields made the ultimate sacrifice during the height of the pandemic in order to serve and protect their community, putting themselves on the front line of the pandemic.

Kellogg Co said on Tuesday a majority of its U.S. cereal plant workers have voted against a new five-year contract, forcing it to hire permanent replacements as employees extend a strike that started more than two months ago.Temporary replacements have already been working at the company’s cereal plants in Michigan, Nebraska, Pennsylvania and Tennessee where 1,400 union members went on strike on Oct. 5 as their contracts expired and talks over payment and benefits stalled, according to Reuters.

“Interest in the (permanent replacement) roles has been strong at all four plants, as expected. We expect some of the new hires to start with the company very soon,” Kellogg spokesperson Kris Bahner said.

Kellogg also said there was no further bargaining scheduled and it had no plans to meet with the union.
