Mallinckrodt workers reject contract offer

By AP/KWMU

St. Louis, MO – Workers at the Mallinckrodt chemical plant in St. Louis have rejected a contract offer from the company.

About 98% of nearly 400 workers voted down the proposal. They've been locked out of the plant since Friday.

The United Auto Workers union represents the employees, who make up about a third of all workers at the plan. They have been negotiating since January.

The union turned down a previous offer earlier this month. Pension plans and health care are the main issues in the dispute.
