Workers strike at bankrupt aluminum maker Ormet

www.katc.com: “HANNIBAL, Ohio About 13-hundred workers at bankrupt aluminum maker Ormet have walked off the job today over the company’s plan to impose new labor agreements as part of its reorganization.

Chief executive Michael Williams says salaried employees will take over production and keep the two plants open in the southeast Ohio town of Hannibal.

Wheeling, West Virginia-based Ormet has about two-thousand employees at facilities in Ohio, West Virginia, Indiana and Louisiana.

A union official says the strike is limited to the Hannibal plants.

Steelworkers at the locals representing the two plants voted Thursday to strike today unless the company delayed a U-S Bankruptcy Court hearing seeking approval for the company’s reorganization plan.”
