LONDON, Ont. — After nearly 90 years in London, Ont., Kellogg Co. will shut the doors of its cereal plant by the end of next year, cutting more than 500 full-time jobs.
Employees were told of the plans during a staff meeting Tuesday, about a month after the company announced a restructuring plan that would have laid off 110 workers by January.
Union president Bob Martin said workers were taken aback by the news, given that they had been working with Kellogg to lower costs.
“It was pretty shocking for us considering all the work we’ve done over the last several years,” said Martin, who represents Local 154G of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers Union.
