At first I had sympathy for the strikers. When I learned that they damaged machinery at Stella D'Oro , and now they are sticking stickers about the strike on the product in order to damage it, these people deserve NO SYMPATHY.

I will now lose money

That is ridiculous. Just because one person cannnot contain their anger does not mean that you should have "no sympathy" for them. My mother is a striker at Stella D'Oro and these people are DESPERATE to go back to work. They are there everyday, rain or shine. It's ridiculous to hold them accountable for the inhuman and irresponsible actions of the Brynwood partners. How dare you. After these people have worked 10, 20 and 30 years and broken their backs for this company, blame them? You are an ignorant fool. And stickers I have never heard about are the least of their worries. And BTW they aren't even allowed inside the factory so I HIGHLY doubt they had anything to do with any "broken machinery".

the strikers deserve nothin. they had to pay a fraction of their insurences and tbecame furious. these people are putting acting like they are the right when the company didnt want any of this. they put it on themselves and because they were selfish now they will haveto deal with unemployment until it runs out. next time dont mess up a good thing. and secondly if they really were trying to do the right thing they need to stop calling these workers scabs and racial words. these people are human and need jobs to if you wanted to leave that isnt their fault

This is amazing. People deserving to live on unemployment until it runs out...while the company continues to make money. People who work deserve to be compensated. We are experiencing hard times with our economy and people need benefits and a decent wage in order to survive and I am one who beleives there should be enough for everyone. From the CEO's to the workers. If you take care of your employees, they will come to work and take care of the business.

Im hungry, and the only thing to satisfy my urges is a delicious fudge filled Stella D'oro cookie... now get on it, and stop holding the company by the skin of their balls..... stupid unions..... just chill out and eat a cookie every once and a while, and maybe all this weather will blow over sooner than you think....

It is a known fact. The strikers knowing there was going to be a strike, damaged machinery before they left. They also damaged and stole software used to run the machines. These strikers worked real, real hard, BUT also had a very sweet deal. They made a huge mistake going on strike, and many of them agree. It's too bad that they are afraid to go back to work . I, too, have seen stickers placed on Stella products. I hope these "strikers" get arrested and thrown in jail. They are taking money out of the drivers pockets, That is un-fair. Why dosen't a "striker" come forward and tell the public what an average Stella worker made in salary, vacation, and benefits. You would lose ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT vey quickly.

I note the anti union comment makers do not have the guts to put even a handle to their blather.
Go Union! Solidarity wins. Stay strong. Take it easy, but take it!
