After employees at four Kellogg's plants, including its Memphis location, went on strike on Tuesday morning, Tennessee AFL-CIO President Billy Dycus issued the following statement.

"Every worker deserves to be treated with dignity, respect, and fairness on the job. No excuses, nothing less. Our BCTGM brothers and sisters have a simple request: to earn a living wage at a time when corporate greed continues to spiral out-of-control and receive good benefits that can support their families. The Tennessee AFL-CIO stands in solidarity with BCTGM Local 252G in Memphis and all of the union’s members who are affected by the strike in Nebraska, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. We call on Kellogg's to come to the bargaining table and ensure that a fair agreement is reached quickly. The state federation and its affiliates are ready and willing to assist as needed throughout the duration of the strike."
