WASHINGTON, Pa. (WTRF) — Union workers at Langloth Metallurgical Company held a strike Tuesday but it wasn’t for an increase in wages.

United Auto Workers Local 1311 members cite seniority and safety issues as the reasoning behind the strike.

UAW Local 1311 President, Jim Hall, released the following statement regarding the strike:

Today, we are standing united for our workplace, dignity, and seniority rights. Make no mistake, our union fights hard for economic issues, but working with dignity and respecting our seniority is just as important for our members as economic issues. We are prepared to stand united until we come to an agreement that achieves this.

Jim Hall, President of United Auto Workers Local 1311
