It's the official end of the Twinkie. Mediation talks between Hostess and the bakers union failed yesterday and the company will now go into liquidation.
The Secretary of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers Union said "it's over" when he left the talks.
The union says the company had been badly managed and that even if they would have agreed to all the concessions, the company still would have gone under. Over 18,000 employees will now be out of work including 150 here in Peoria.
