Union Workers on Strike

Over 500 union workers at Pantex are going on strike in just two hours.  Tonight the employees voted to reject the company's final offer to the guards union for a new labor agreement.

The union met tonight in Amarillo to reach a decision and NewsChannel 10 was there.  The president tells us that the workers are concerned about their benefits from medical packages to pension programs and also retaining seniority rights.

The employees will be on the picket lines starting at 6:00 a.m.  NewsChannel 10 will be there.
