LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Members of a United Auto Workers (UAW) local went on strike over the weekend at Ingersoll-Rand’s ‘Trane’ facility in Lexington. The union says it’s because of unfair labor practices. The union’s contract expired on February 27 at 10:00 p.m., according to the company.
The company says it offered union workers a new contract and they rejected it.
In a statement to ABC 36 News, the company says Ingersoll Rand is committed to delivering premier performance for its customers and has taken measures to ensure business continuity at the facility until its valued employees return to work. It went on to say, the company is hopeful for a resolution.
No information was released about contract talks.
