Auto dealer strike continues in St. Louis suburb

Service department workers at Valley Ford auto dealership in Hazelwood (MO) reported Friday no end to their nine-day strike.

The workers include 18 members of the International Association of Machinists District 9, Local Lodge 777 and 10 members of the Teamsters Union Local 618.

There were no plans Friday afternoon to return to negotiations, said Tony Rippeto, business representative for IAM district 9.

For the first time in more than 30 years, individual auto dealers have negotiated separate labor agreements with service department employees. The majority of contracts have been similar and were negotiated successfully.
