Judge orders end to Memphis Kellogg lockout story image

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A judge has ordered the Kellogg Co. to put employees at its Memphis, Tennessee, cereal production facility back to work.
    
The ruling on Wednesday came after the National Labor Relations Board filed a complaint in March against the company related to a lockout of about 220 employees.
    
The board said in its complaint that Kellogg violated the National Labor Relations Act by insisting on an impasse on bargaining proposals related to wages and benefits and by locking out the workers "in furtherance of its bad-faith bargaining position."
    
Contract negotiations between the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union and Kellogg failed in October.
    
WMC-TV reports the judge gave the Battle Creek, Michigan-based Kellogg five days to put the Memphis employees back to work.
