Quote of the Week: ‘No’ to Hostess Brands

November 19 2012

“The economy’s tough right now. We don’t support breaking the union. … We also have clients this could be an affront to, so we turned this down,” the Portland (Maine) Press Herald newspaper quotes Bill DiGuilio, operations manager for Rock Coast Personnel, as saying in a story last Thursday. DiGuilio was describing why his firm turned down a request from Hostess Brands Inc. to hire 25 workers for its Biddeford, Maine, operation.

Hostess, the Twinkies-maker, was in the midst of a strike. And the company announced Friday that it filed a motion in bankruptcy court to close its business and sell its assets.
