A viral post on Twitter has people proposing a boycott of food conglomerate Kellogg after more than 1,400 workers who produce some of the most iconic cereals in the world went on strike last week.

Employees at plants making Rice Krispies, Raisin Bran, Froot Loops, Corn Flakes, Frosted Flakes and other breakfast cereals are the latest to strike in a series of actions by food workers. (Workers at Instacart, Nabisco and Frito-Lay all went on strike or urged boycotts earlier this year.) Tensions are heightened amid a labor shortage and supply chain troubles, and it appears both workers and consumers are taking a stand.

Union members at four separate Kellogg plants in Nebraska, Michigan, Tennessee and Pennsylvania walked out last Tuesday over stalled contract negotiations and after they say Kellogg threatened to move jobs to Mexico if workers didn’t agree to their contract proposals. At issue are concerns like ending pensions for newer workers and higher health care costs, the workers say.
