ICYMI: Teamsters react to Hostess News

In case you missed it, here is Teamster General Secretary-Treasurer Ken Hall's statement on the failure of Hostess Brands Inc. and the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union to reach an agreement during mediation:
Unfortunately, the last minute mediation efforts by Judge Drain were not successful. The case will proceed tomorrow at 11 a.m. with the judge hearing Hostess Brands motion to ‘wind down’ the company. Judge Drain may rule from the bench tomorrow on the motion. 
As we said on Friday when the company announced it was closing, this is a tragic outcome and our thoughts and prayers go out to all Teamster Hostess members and all Hostess employees.
