WOWK, Charleston, Huntington, WV
Contract talks break down between the company and its workers with a contract set to expire Sunday.
A strike vote may be taking place at this hour by workers at West Virginia Steel in Huntington.
United Steel Workers of America Local 37 members unanimously rejected what WV Steel presented as its last — best — and final offer. USWA negotiator Carlton Hall says the company is no longer negotiating in good faith. He says they simply threw the offer on the table without acknowledging the union’s position on two major issues.
