ZF INDUSTRIES EMPLOYEES STRIKING FOR BETTER WAGES

Alabama Jobs

Local United Auto Workers are striking against what they say is unfair treatment.

Several workers from Mercedes-Benz U.S. International supplier ZF Industries have been striking since Thursday.

Employees say they want better wages and benefits after changes in insurance have raised their deductible prices. Long-time employees have reached a pay cap and can no longer receive yearly raises, they said.

Negotiations have been ongoing for seven months, but an agreement has not yet been made.
