(Reuters) – Kellogg Co has reached an agreement with the union on a new five-year contract for its employees at several breakfast cereals plants in the United States, they said on Thursday, nearly two months after the workers went on strike.

The expected agreement, the company said, to be reached after numerous negotiations with the union includes an increase in wages and benefits for all employees and a “determined path” to legacy wages and benefits. for temporary workers.

The union expects employees to vote on the latest tentative deal on December 5, Kellogg said.

Employees at Kellogg’s grain plant went on strike October 5 after their contracts expired, as negotiations over payment and benefits stalled due to differences between the company and approx. 1,400 union members.

Kellogg has hired long-term replacements for some of its factory workers who are on strike, after the union rejected a revised offer from the company earlier last month. (This story gathered to correct the syntax in the title)
