Workers prefer paychecks to picket signs

Replacement employees went to work Wednesday morning at American Standard as 270 workers remain on strike.

With police standing by, about fifty workers crossed picket lines at the Salem plant. The company says the number of replacement workers could grow to 120 by Monday. Despite the replacements the union says it will continue their strike. About 19 members of United Steelworkers Local 15-38 have gone back to work.

The workers walked off the job in mid October.
