Talks between Northrop Grumman and the unions are over for the day, with very little movement towards a compromise agreement. Mike Crowley, representing the Metal Trades Union told WLOX News, "we met with the company and identified our issues, little progress was made."
The workers presented their issues to the company, basically saying they want highyer wages and lower insurance costs. Union leaders presented a plan to increase pay by 4 dolllars an hour over the next three years, something company officials have said in the past is unrealistic.
Ingalls president Philip Teal declined to comment, only saying "leave all the statements to them." Watch WLOX News for more on the story later today.
