About 150 workers at Badger Foundry in Winona are on strike and picketing their employer, but they won't publicly disclose what is at the heart of the contract dispute, the Associated Press reports.
“We will work it out between the company,” international union representative Jerry Cotton said in the Winona Daily News, which talked to picketing workers. “We have a good relationship with them, but we have bumps in the road and we will work it out from there.”
A Badger plant manager offered a written statement, that read in part: “The company feels strongly that its offer would have allowed our employees to continue to receive excellent pay and benefits."
No additional negotiations were scheduled, the Daily News reported.
