UAW on Strike in Freeport

By  | 

Union workers are on the picket line after rejecting Anchor Harvey's latest contract offer.

UAW workers voted overwhelmingly to reject the offer.

Negotiations between UAW representatives and company officials continued into Thursday night, but with no progress.

Union works say the company wants to cut their pay by 20-percent, raise health care insurance to $350 a month and freeze pension plans. The company says it wants to stay competitive. This is the first work stoppage in over 20 years at Anchor Harvey.
