Local 712 Members
Pictured at the
Nov. 20 rally are Rich Littleton, Pres. Bob Smith, Randy Justice, Dave
Kunninger, Dave Soupbean Pierce, Mike Collipe and Ron Jacobs.
Local 712 members at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio were
locked out for nearly 50 days two and a half years ago, so when they heard
that locked-out Steelworkers were having a rally in Mansfield, about 20 miles
away, several decided to be there.
USWA Local 169 members were locked out on
Sept. 1 when their contract with Armco Steel expired. Now owned by AK Steel,
the plant is being operated by scabs and salaried employees.
