Kellogg's gives a great Christmas gift to 500 employees. They will all be without work come Christmastime next year. What irks me about these corporations is how they invariably pick Christmastime to give their dirty news! How disheartening to know that there will be 500 families not having a happy Christmas this year because they will wonder what will happen to them come December 2014.
Shame on the decision makers at Kelloggs!! Couldn't you have waited until January 2014 to give the bad news.
...The Kellogg’s plant in London, Ont., will close by the end of 2014, resulting in the loss of more than 500 full-time jobs.
The employees were told the news Tuesday during a staff meeting.
"As with any project of this scope and one that impacts people, these are difficult decisions," John Bryant, president and chief executive of Kellogg Company said in a statement.
"We are very mindful of the impact these changes will have — particularly to our employees. As our employees and others would expect from Kellogg, we will help those who are impacted through their transitions."
Just last month, the company announced that it was laying off 110 workers by January 2014.
Kellogg’s has been in London since 1924...........
