IRVING, Texas (AP) - It looks like the maker of Twinkies won't be going out of business just yet.
Hostess and its second-largest union are going to go into mediation to try to resolve their differences.
The news came after the company tried to liquidate and sell off its assets in bankruptcy court, citing a crippling strike last week.
The bankruptcy judge hearing the case says that the parties haven't gone through the critical step of mediation and asked the lawyer for the bakery's union to ask his client, who wasn't present, if he would agree to participate.
The case is being heard by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of New York in White Plains, N.Y.
