Strike Possible at Wise Alloys
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Officials are bracing for a possible strike today at the Wise Alloys plant in Colbert County that employs 1,000 workers.

Charles Lamon, assistant business manager for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 558, said workers would prefer to stay on the job.

Labor contracts expire today for most, if not all, of the 11 unions representing the workers.

Company spokesman Wayne Travers has said that the goal in the negotiations is ''a fair and equitable outcome for all parties involved.''

But many of the maintenance workers are expected on the picket line this afternoon when their contract ends.
