UPS talks with Teamsters broke down! & The strike continues!

On Saturday 9, 1997 -- The Teamsters' negotiation with the UPS officials broke down as they both walked off the discussion table. People are afraid that the six-day-old strike which has disrupted parcel deliveries across the nation may be a protracted one.

UPS may be thinking of hiring replacement workers of which move may cause negative responses from the Teamsters. Ron Carey, the Teamsters President said Saturday, it was time the strikers started digging in.

According to local responses from St. Louis, some people said that this may be the start of a giant labor crisis in the United States since union's power to negotiate contracts has gradually eroded in the past ten years. Others said, the strike may have less impact on the national level because people are aware of the political mindset of the Republicans controlled Congress.

President Clinton so far has decided not to get involved and hoping for a peaceful resolution from compromise on both sides. He is expected in St. Louis early this week.
