Timken Employees Demanding a New Contract Before Returning to Work

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.--Dozens of Timken employees are negotiating for a new contract in Springfield. 

They wrapped up picketing around 5:30 on Tuesday evening until they vote on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, at 11:00 Tuesday morning, union employees clocked out from work early and started a strike.

A string of cars stretched from the plant all the way to the street.

Inside of them were United Steelworkers Union employees participating in an organized walk out.

They later returned with signs that said "Fair Contract Now" and "ULP Strike."

While not providing specifics regarding why they're striking, workers say they are unhappy with their pay and the conditions of their contract.

KOLR 10 tried reaching out to Timken and the union rep for comment but never heard back. 

KOLR 10 also attempted to talk to employees about the nature of their strike, but they were all tight-lipped.
