MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

The Kellogg's lockout of more than 220 workers at the Memphis cereal plant has drawn attention from the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

The Caucus consists of 75 members of the U.S. House of Representatives from around the country. They wrote a letter to Kellogg CEO John Bryant urging the company to "reconsider its approach" and resolve the dispute.

The letter reads... "the damage wrought by the dispute is accumulating...middle class jobs like these are economic and social linchpins in their community. Preserving and expanding a fairly paid, equitably managed workforce is in the interest of all parties, including Kellogg, the workforce and the Community of Memphis..."

More than 220 workers have been locked out of their jobs at the Kellogg's cereal plant since Oct. 22, 2013.
