There are picket lines this morning at Hostess plants nationwide, including one in Oakland.

Thousands of bakery workers are on strike right now three days after the company imposed a contract that would cut wages by 8 percent.

Workers at the Colombo Bakery in Oakland and a Hostess plant in Sacramento are among those who walked off the job. Hostess says products are still being made and shipped at least for now. Hostess filed for bankruptcy in January.
