The unions do not want to compromise at all
economics won’t either

Can the judge force them to “mediate” with the union? That’s my impression.

Haven’t they already been though mediation....the result of which the union rejected?

An unopened box of 10 Twinkies is selling for an average price on Ebay for about 30 bucks. That's with a singles pack of snowballs as a kicker.

Sounds like the judge wants to force them to stay in business despite the fact that they will be operating at a loss.
Ignorance of basic accounting principles is bliss.
For the ignorant.

They have been mediating since April.

The owner of a company I used to work for filed for bankruptcy, and as it was the second time, the creditors were ultimately trying to force serious changes. It turned into a heave-ho match with the owner unwilling to make any significant concessions, and the creditors unwilling to lose all of their money.
The judge wanted to them to work things out to avoid a Trustee. Well, it didn't happen, and an extra $2 million was wasted in the court room of a small company with most small time creeditors who could have used it. At times, lawyers would spend the better part of a billable hour in court arguing over which fund pays for the lawyers fees. It was right out of Dickens' Bleak House.
In the end, the result was the same as would have been had the judge been able to realize that one side was completely intractable, and the other was largely intractable. This cost the business three years and two million dollars, neither of which it really had, and everyone was the poorer for it.

Sell it — too much featherbedding in the current economic model. A new buyer will pay more for the assets if it doesn’t have to deal with the unions.
If hostess caves to the union I can see them getting the JC Penny treatment by consumers.
He misses his twinkies...

Bankrupt them ans sell off the assets.
At least if Bimbo buys them the union can go pound sand and the quality will be as good or improve!

Wow. I’m shocked so many in here are on the same page as the union goons and want Hostess to go down. So much for the faux sympathy that was expressed for the thousands of employees now out of work.
Damn. I should go back and study bankruptcy and practice in that field.
