The strike appears over at Hurd Windows and Doors. The fate of the jobs for 40 members of Local No. 1025 who went to the picket line on October 3 is unknown.
Lowell Schultz, business representative for the Midwestern Council of Industrial Workers, said the union made an unconditional offer to return to work Tuesday. Schultz said the company told workers they had been replaced and their names were now on a preferential hiring list.
Schultz said the workers struck because of unfair labor practices in the negotiation of a new contract and have a right to come back to their jobs and pay level. Schultz said the company is taking the position that his is an economic strike and has hired permanent replacement workers.
“They played that card and it is out position that we have no alternative but to go to the National labor Relations Board,” Schultz said.
