Dublin Volvo workers still on strike
- February 11, 2008
Workers at the Volvo Trucks North America plant in Dublin have entered their second week on strike.
Workers at the plant, Volvo’s only North American manufacturer of its heavy-duty trucks, began striking at midnight on Feb. 1 when their contract expired. About 2,600 employees of the plant are part of the United Auto Workers Local 2069.
The union failed to reach an agreement on a new contract throughout negotiations in January. About 95 percent of union workers voted on Jan. 28 to start the strike.
