Manitowoc Cranes tells striking machinists it's hiring replacements
Manitowoc Cranes has told striking machinists that it's hiring replacements to meet the demands of customers.
The firm is not saying how many replacements are being brought in. About 200 members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers walked off their jobs Nov. 14.
The striking workers represent a quarter of the total workforce at Manitowoc Cranes, although a number of other workers were temporarily laid off due to the strike.
