    crane workers on strike

    Some people just don’t get it! After a month of negotiations the company refused to give a proposal for the workers to vote on that did not include removing the union security clause in the present contract thus making it an open shop. This is what really caused the 99.9% rejection vote, not money. The old contract expired Oct. 31 and the union tried until Nov 9th to negotiate a proposal with the help of a federal mediator but the company
    still wanted the union workers to vote on a contract that would create and open shop. Their were really no options left except a strike. It’s a shame when the strike had to be the
    lesser of 2 evils to choose from. So Stewartwins …. big wheels bonuses really wasn’t the issue here.
    This may seem like a joke to some of you but its not when its your lively hood at stake.
