Mediation for Hostess

Posted: Updated:


Hostess Twinkies may live on after all.  Hostess Brands agreed to a Tuesday mediation session with union leaders to try and solve their differences.  The company's planned liquidation is on hold for now. 

A bankruptcy judge said Monday he wanted both sides to try one last time to reach an agreement that could preserve more than 18,000 jobs.  The Bakery Workers union went on strike November ninth when the company imposed pay cuts and other concessions.  Hostess Brands shut down operations Friday. 

The mediation meeting is set for 1:00 p.m. Tuesday.  So far, details or results have not been released.
