Posted On: Oct 14, 2019
Oct. 14, 2019 | STRIKES | Thousands of Mack Truck workers were on strike Sunday at plants in three states, the first such walkout in decades. United Automobile Workers union members walked out of plants in Baltimore; Hagerstown; Middletown, Pennsylvania, and Jacksonville, Florida, the union said. In all, the company said the strike involves about 3,500 employees "One of the biggest issues for us is the job security," Walter Smith, president of the local representing Pennsylvania workers, told WCAU-TV. "I've been here for 42 years at Mack Trucks, love working at Mack Trucks. But we need to have our job security."… Baltimore Sun
