UAW still on strike in Paris

An Illinois company responds to striking employees. The workers at the ZF Boge plant in Paris have been on strike for the last several days. Union members say they're upset over wages and healthcare.

The company has issued a statement to News 10 saying quote "We are very disappointed at the decision to strike." They go on to say "our hope was to expand the Paris plant and add jobs here, but i don't know what impact this strike could have on that decision." End quote.

The two sides are expected to meet later this week. The Paris ZF Boge plant makes rubber parts and other components for cars.
