Steelworkers Threaten To Strike

Close to 100 Tyler steel workers may not be going to work tomorrow, if they cannot reach an agreement with their employer, Vesuvius.

That's according to the local union president of the Steelworkers of America.

"If in fact our contract is not ratified by midnight, then we will be on strike," James Wilkins, of Local 58, said. "We believe that's our last option."

The union is not disclosing details of its proposed contract. The steelworkers have been in negotiations with Vesuvius for the past week.
