Members of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union walked out of a Quality Meats processing plant in Toronto at midnight Monday morning, as reported by Meatingplace.com. The 600 workers are demanding higher pay, better work hours and increased pension funding after voting down a management offer on Oct. 28.

Hogs on their way to the plant have been diverted to other destinations, many of them ending up at U.S. processing plants, reports Meatingplace.com. Ontario authorities are asking farmers to hold their hogs on the farm temporarily so as not to create a glut.
