TWINKIES, DING-DONGS & HO-HO’s are Back … Hostess Brands LLC to Hire 1,500 Workers But No Union Labor


They’re soon to be back … If you thought that Twinkies, Ding-Dongs and Ho-Ho’s were going the way of the Do-Do bird, you would be wrong. Hostess Brands LLC is reopening four bakeries to get Twinkies back in the hands of the public by July 2013. However, there is just one catch. Hostess Brands plans on hiring 1500 workers to bring back the tasty golden, delicious cream filled snack, but none of them will be union workers.

Hostess Brands — Metropoulos & Co. and Apollo Global Management’s APO -0.58% new incarnation of the baking company that liquidated in Chapter 11 — is reopening four bakeries in the next eight to 10 weeks, aiming to get Twinkie-deprived consumers the classic snack cake starting in July.

Chief Executive C. Dean Metropoulos said the company will pump $60 million in capital investments into the plants between now and September and aims to hire at least 1,500 workers. But they won’t be represented by unions, including the one whose nationwide strike sparked the 86-year-old company’s decision to shut down in November.

      Unions are like parasites. They always kill the host. Sometimes slowly.
