MiscellaneousPossible Strike at Jeep Assembly Plant

Jeep workers in Toledo may strike on September 14.

From the Ohio News Network:

Union workers at Toledo's Jeep plant have authorized negotiators to call a strike if their contract isn't settled by September 14th.

Ninety-six percent of those voting approved the measure Thursday.

Workers could stay on the job past the deadline if negotiations continue.

The Jeep plant has 4,200 workers and is the largest industrial employer in the Toledo area.

Then plant is one of the only DaimlerChrysler plants not covered by the national UAW agreement, which also expires September 14th.

Thursday’s vote doesn't necessarily mean there will be a strike. Workers could stay on the job past the deadline if negotiations continue.

A spokesman for DaimlerChrysler declined comment.

here is my comment:
A strike vote is a normal first move on our union's opening salvo. Blustering of both party's is also normal. Not to get upset folks. All they are saying to each other is, "my gun is bigger than your gun."

Strike votes are normal at contract time. Don't get hysterical yet.

We'll be doin the same at the Belvidere IL (Neon) plant soon.
