Nearly five dozen members of UAW Local 291 have gone on strike. The picketing began early Monday morning, Feb. 6, after the conclusion of a workers’ meeting during which the decision was made to take action.

The workers at AxleTech chose to go on strike because they believe they are being put at a disadvantage in the negotiation process, with essential information regarding insurance coverage being denied to them.

“We are on an unfair labor practice strike,” UAW Local 291 President Robert Mitchell said. “We hope to get an agreement soon to get our people back to work.”

In addition to the picketing, the members of UAW Local 291 are planning a support rally to be held at their union headquarters in Oshkosh at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 11.
