Listen to this Article Now

Kellogg (NYSE: K) Co announced on Thursday that it has struck a deal with the union on a new five year contract for its workers at a few breakfast cereal facilities in the United States, nearly two months after they went on strike.

The tentative agreement includes salary hikes and benefits for all employees, as well as a “clear path” to legacy wages and benefits for temporary workers, according to the firm.

Employees are expected to vote on the current preliminary deal on Dec. 5, according to Kellogg. Employees at Kellogg’s cereal facilities went on strike on Oct. 5 after their contracts expired, citing disagreements between the firm and around 1,400 union members in negotiations over compensation and benefits.

After the union rejected a new offer from Kellogg earlier this month, the business hired permanent replacements for some of its factory workers who were on strike.
