Be real interesting to see what happens with the two unions, the idiots that caused this in the first place. The contracts are still in effect, I believe...but there is no way that any new buyer would touch this without first renegotiating the contracts..

The contracts are with Hostess, the corporation. The buyers aren't buying the corporation, they're buying the assets (trademarks, recipes, etc.). So the buyer will not be subject to the union contracts.
