This is a Reblogged from FoxNews.com.

The liquidation of Hostess has been put on hold after a federal judge ordered the company and union officials to come back to the table for more talks, Fox Business Network reported.

The union that brought the 85-year-old baker of Twinkies and Wonder Bread to its knees was holding out hope that a buyer will salvage chunks of the company and send the union’s members back to work, even as Hostess Brands Inc. had geared up for a fire sale.

Hostess, the company behind treats snacked on for generations, presented to a federal bankruptcy judge a plan to shut down 36 plants and sell off the company’s business. Their liquidation plan was sparked by a nationwide strike orchestrated by the snack maker’s second-largest union, the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers.

The Wall Street Journal reports that while Hostess has said the shutdown would result in the loss of more than 18,000 jobs and place the fate of more than 30 American brands in jeopardy, union President Frank Hurt said he believed there was “more than a good chance” that a buyer quickly would swoop in to buy the profitable parts of the company and give his union’s members their jobs back.

“I’m not in a position to promise anybody anything, but I’m in a position to be hopeful,” he said Sunday to the Journal.

Hurt, whose union counts 5,600 Hostess employees as members, said he was comforted by the recent frenzy over Hostess products, as consumers rushed to stock up after Friday’s announcement of the shutdown. “People are going crazy because they think they’re not going to be able to get any Twinkies or Ho Ho‘s or Wonder Bread,” he also said in the interview. “They’ll be produced somewhere, some time and by our members.”

Hostess Chief Executive Gregory Rayburn had a different vision of how the bankruptcy auction process would play out.

“Nobody wants to have anything to do with these old plants or these unions or these contracts,” Rayburn said in an interview. The company had hunted for buyers for the last several years as it tried to avoid a second trip into bankruptcy, but no buyer came forward.

One thought on “Judge puts Hostess liquidation on hold, orders talks

  1. Steve Schitt on said:

    This is ridiculous… That Federal Judge should butt the hell out of this, and just let the chips fly where they may… Hostess is sick and tired of dealing with the unions, and it is their RIGHT to call it quits, and let the unions go to hell… Sure, Hostess has the upper hand now, but if i were Hostess, i would not only refuse to give the Unions any ground, but i would also demand the unions make a LOT more “concessions”, and not cave in to them.. Hostess shouldn’t have to put up with any more garbage at all, period.. So, be prepared to see Hostess take a very firm stand now…

The ‘red pill’ and its opposite, ‘blue pill,‘ are pop culture terms that have become symbolic of the choice between blissful ignorance (blue) and embracing the sometimes-painful truth of reality (red). It’s time for America to take the red pill and wake up from the fog of apathy.
