UAW strikes against International

| 10/24/2007

About 4,000 United Auto Workers in six states went on strike against International Truck and Engine Corp. Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 23, claiming the company has unfair labor practices.

ITE is a unit of Navistar International.

The Dow Jones Newswire quotes a company official as saying the unfair labor practice charge is “totally unfounded.”

The strike comes after the UAW contract expired on Oct. 1, and negotiations failed to produce a new agreement.
