What do you do when the company means what is says and a bankruptcy judge approves liquidation?  You say "oops," union style:

"The union said in a court filing that its sole objective was to leave Hostess with "a real, rather than an illusory or theoretical, likelihood of establishing a stable business with secure jobs."

Union president Frank Hurt was not immediately available for comment.

"This is truly a sad day for thousands of families affected by the closing of this company," said Teamsters General Secretary-Treasurer Ken Hall in a statement. "I want to assure our members that despite this outcome, they do not stand alone and their union will continue to work on their behalf to help them find new employment."

John Galt? noted a business owner cannot be forced to stay in business.  Strange to watch this happen.  Not the first time - won't be the last.  Unions have seen this coming which is the reason for the fight for Governmental employees to become unionized. 

And what a terrible outcome at any time of year, but particularly Thanksgiving...
