STRIKE OVER: Union workers reach agreement with Frito-Lay

Local News

TOPEKA (KSNT) – Frito-Lay’s unionized employees have ended their strike for better working conditions and pay after nearly a month of failed debate, union members confirmed Saturday morning.

Union members voted Friday on the latest tentative agreement from the company and union leaders followed by an overnight tally. The vote determined the workers accepted the latest negotiated offer, which means their strike is now over in Topeka.

Frito-Lay employees went on strike starting July 5, and went 19 days straight before voting to accept the offer.

A document leaked Thursday afternoon detailed the new agreement reached between Frito-Lay and the union leadership. While it showed a guaranteed day off for them during the week and frontloaded wage raises, it would also get rid of the company’s offer to limit overtime.
