Some movement to the positive side in the 21 day old Husky Lima Refinery strike, that according to Union President Mike Edelbrock.
The two sides talked for about five hours Thursday. Edelbrock says they reached approximately 15 tentative agreements, including how the 401-k program will be handled. Edelbrock cautions that there is still work to do, including on trick-trade issues and working conditions. He also says the company has yet to sign onto the 3 year international contract. Edelbrock says the company indicated the 3 week long strike has cost Husky 2 million dollars.
He says they have agreed to continue contract talks on Tuesday June 19th at 10am and on Thursday June 21st if necessary.
Edelbrock also reports no more workers have crossed the picket line, the total as of Wednesday night stands at 9.
Your News Now was still waiting for a company response to Thursday's talks at the time of this posting.
