Federal mediator brought in for labor dispute between union and PepsiCo

Earlier this week, we highlighted the possible lockout of Frito-Lay employees in Kansas by PepsiCo. Today, we have an update. According to Kimberly Donahue of WIBW, “Contract negotiations between union workers at Frito-Lay and the company have reached a point where a federal mediator will be brought in to help reach an agreement.”

After leaving a (polite) message for the PepsiCO Board, join us in Tweeting @PepsiCo and CEO @ramonlaguarta:

@ramonlaguarta lockouts are an unacceptable form of union-busting! @PepsiCo should honor employee’s labor and dignity by bargaining in good faith.
