CBS13/AP) It looks like Hostess may not got of business…just yet.

Hostess Brands Inc. and its second largest union will go into mediation to try and resolve their differences, meaning the Irving, Texas-based company won’t go out of business just yet. The news came Monday after Hostess moved to liquidate and sell off its assets in bankruptcy court citing a crippling strike last week.

The bankruptcy judge hearing the case says that the parties haven’t gone through the critical step of mediation and asked the lawyer for the bakery’s union to ask his client, who wasn’t present, if he would agree to participate.

The case is being heard by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of New York in White Plains, N.Y.

Nearly 200 workers at the Hostess plant in Sacramento could have their jobs saved if Hostess stays in business

Of course they aren't going to be gone. People just freak out and media plays it up.

Either they will work things out within the company or someone will buy them out.

Too bad another company couldn't buy them out and get rid of the union.

Well I certainly hope they can work something out for the sake of those people who are going to be out of a job!!

Not surprising. They've been in financial trouble before and overcame it. And of not, someone else will start making and selling Twinkies.
