Workers' decertification vote would end 7 month strike

Striking Maremont Corp. workers in Loudon, TN have been off the job and on picket lines for seven months. Friday, the employees vote to either keep or get rid of their union - IAM Local 2545 - as a collective bargaining agent. Both striking and non-striking workers will vote whether to decertify the union.

Contract negotiations failed, and workers went on strike in February. A decision to keep the union would keep the strike going.

10 News and wbir.com will report the results of that vote when they are available.
