Workers May Strike After Supreme Court Denies ASARCO’s Appeal

A recent decision by the U.S. Supreme Court may lead to workers striking.

The Court has denied ASARCO, LLC’s petition for an appeal of the decision to enforce an order for the company.

The order states that the company needs to pay more than $10 million to hundreds of employees hired after June 30, 2011.

The company owes the employees after it was determined it wrongly withheld from newer employees quarterly bonuses based on the price of copper.

Employees at the Amarillo location will meet on Thursday, October 10 to vote on a strike.

The meetings will be held at 7:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m.,  and 4:00 p.m. at the USW Local 5613 Union Hall in Amarillo.
