For the past few months, employees at Mack Trucks in Greensboro, North Carolina have been on strike in order to receive better wages and improved working conditions. After rejecting a contract proposal that was presented to them by the company, over 2000 workers have stood together in solidarity in order to present their demands to the company. The workers are demanding fair wages and better benefits, such as health care and retirement packages. They are also asking for increased safety precautions, improved working conditions, and better job security. The strike has been ongoing for over two months, and has spread to other Mack Trucks plants in the U.S. The strikers are being backed by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, a labor union that represents the workers’ interests. According to Teamster union representative David White, “This strike is about the basic rights of workers to be able to negotiate a contract that protects them and their families”. He also said that the strikers are determined to stay out on the picket lines until their demands are met. Mack Trucks is an American truck manufacturing company that produces everything from commercial and construction vehicles to its popular diesel engine line. The company has been seen as a reliable manufacturing force in the US since its first vehicle rolled off the production line in 1910. The strikers are hopeful that the Mack Trucks company will come to the negotiating table and offer a contract that will meet their demands. Until then, they remain resolute and are standing firm in their convictions. The coming weeks may prove to be the tipping point in this long-running labor dispute.
