Plow drivers to strike
DULUTH (AP) — Union snowplow drivers are set to strike today in northeastern Minnesota’s St. Louis County as snow moves into the area.
Teamsters Local 320 posted on Facebook that union negotiators and members decided to engage in a countywide work stoppage. The local’s chief negotiator, Erik Skoog, posted that the strike will begin at 7 a.m. today.
Union members voted overwhelmingly Saturday to reject the county’s final contract offer, citing issues over health care and accrued sick leave.
