NEW YORK — The ILGWU launched a full-scale strike against The Leslie Fay Cos. Wednesday morning.
Susan Cowell, a vice president of the union, said about 2,000 Leslie Fay workers in five states, with the largest contingent at several facilities in the Wilkes-Barre area of eastern Pennsylvania, have gone on strike and are conducting “spirited picketing,” with no violence reported. The strike comes after two months of stormy contract negotiations in which Leslie Fay’s proposal to shut down its U.S. production was the main issue. Domestic production, the company says, accounts for 28 percent of its business.The old contract with the union expired at midnight Tuesday, and no further meetings are scheduled.
