I’m surprised at how long this strike has been going on. We’re coming up on 5 months now.
As I understand it, this vote won’t end the strike/lockout/whatever, but only decide who gets to speak for the strikers.
Workers locked out of the AK Steel plant will get a chance to vote this week on their union affiliation.
The Armco Employees Independent Federation currently represents the workers, who have been locked out of the steel plant since midnight on Feb. 28.
The workers will vote Wednesday and Thursday on four choices:
International Association of Machinists
United Steelworkers of America
No union affiliation
