Mansfield Holds Lock-out Picnic

Some locked out steel workers in Kilgore had a support picnic today to bring some solidarity back to their cause.

The local steelworkers union came together in Kilgore in a show of support for their continued lock-out.

They were first locked out of their jobs back on May 31st due to a contract dispute with the Mansfield Plumbing plant in Kilgore.

Workers say the contract would have meant cuts in benefits and as much as four dollars less an hour for workers. Todays event was to renew their commitment to holding out.
