On Thursday, nearly 7,000 workers went on strike at the Ingalls
shipyard, owned by Northrop Grumman, which builds ships for the Navy.
On the picket line Monday, strikers said they were demanding better
wages and benefits to make up for sharp post-Katrina increases in the
price of everything from milk to gas to rent, which they said are
bringing family finances to the breaking point.
Anyone know more about this? It states that it is a multi-union (5 total) strike.
