Following recent news that Hostess Brands LLC plans to reopen and begin hiring employees for bakeries in Columbus, Ga. and Emporia, Kan., the company has announced plans to open additional bakeries in Indianapolis and Schiller Park, Ill. The company, based in Dallas and Kansas City, Mo., is accepting employment applications at both the Columbus and Emporia bakeries. Meanwhile, Hostess has disputed recent media reports that it opposes having labor unions in its bakeries and is specifically seeking non-union workers. “This is not the case,” reads part of company news release. “Hostess respects union rights and will not discriminate against job applicants on the basis of union membership or union activities. Hostess intends to hire the most qualified applicants, regardless of their age, race, gender, or prior or current union affiliation,” the company said. Hostess makes Twinkies, Cup Cakes, HoHos, Ding Dongs and other snack cakes. More information is available at www.hostessbrands.com.
