Thursday night, several Memphis groups will stand in solidarity with the workers to get action.
The locked out workers have not gotten paid since October. Despite Memphis City Council and the Shelby County Commission passing resolutions to end the lockout, a compromise has not yet been reached.
Kellogg's is now fighting a federal complaint filed by the National Labor Relations Board accusing the company of violating federal labor laws. Officials say the company made unlawful demands and threatened the lockout during contract negotiations. Kellogg's maintains its actions have been legal. The company will have a chance to plead its case during a hearing in May.
The Memphis chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and two other groups will hold a rally on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at Crane Creek Baptist Church on Elvis Presley Boulevard. They plan to call for a national boycott of Kellogg's products and raise money for the locked out workers.
WMC Action News 5 cameras will be at the rally. Look for an update Thursday at 10 p.m.
