Local Union on Strike Over Outsourcing [Audio]
Members of the Dex One corporation and IBEW Local union 1269 are currently on strike in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and three other states. Nearly 350 workers are opposing a new plan that they say would make their employment less secure and outsource jobs. KGVO news contacted a spokesman for DEX ONE Chris Hardman, who took the time to respond to the charges.
Hardman says that none of the jobs will be outsourced overseas and that nearly a third of the workers on strike have already returned to work. He also commented that the workers at issue make between $80,000.00 and $100,000.00 per year.
