UFCW still on strike in labor-state

A strike involving about 200 workers at Mountaineer Casino Racetrack & Resort entered its second day Sunday with no new negotiations scheduled. Members of United Food & Commercial Workers Local 23 walked out at 12:01 a.m. Saturday and remained on picket lines outside the track and casino in Chester (WV) on Sunday.

Union spokesman Kevin Kilroy says no bargaining sessions have been set. The contract expired March 1 and the union is seeking higher wages.
Managers and supervisors are filling in for striking cashiers, slot technicians and money room workers. The striking workers represent about 9 percent of the track's work force.
