Striking Kellogg’s workers joined Saturday by Lt. Gov. John Fetterman

About 150 unionized workers striking outside the Kellogg’s cereal-making plant in East Hempfield Township were joined by Lt. Gov. John Fetterman on Saturday afternoon.

“Folks go to a grocery store during the pandemic and they see full shelves. These are some of the folks who made all of that possible,” Fetterman, currently running for a U.S. Senate seat, said of the workers demonstrating outside. “I think them being adequately and fairly compensated is (something everyone should care about).”

The workers were among hundreds at the State Road plant, represented by Local 374 of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers, who went on strike Tuesday after their five-year master contract expired — only the second walkout in the plant’s 45-year-old history. Picket demonstrations have taken place outside the plant since Tuesday morning.
