    but they knew it was coming.

    Hostess Brands Inc. announced Wednesday that it would move to liquidate its iconic baking business if striking union members didn't return to work by Thursday evening.

    The company, which was on the cusp of moving forward with a reorganization plan when work stoppages hamstrung about two-thirds of its 36 plants, said it can't continue operating unless members of the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers Union return to work.
