A labor strike involving Nabisco workers might make it a little more difficult to get your hands on Oreo cookies or Ritz crackers.

The strike started in Portland Oregon a couple of weeks ago. Now, all major U.S. bakeries that make these snacks are on strike. This comes as the bakers' labor union and Nabisco's parent company, Mondelez International, have failed to reach an agreement on a new contract.

Here & Now's Celeste Headlee speaks with Dave Jamieson, a labor reporter for HuffPost.

This segment aired on August 25, 2021.
