One Year on Strike

It's been exactly one year since Conn-Selmer workers decided to go on strike and an end doesn't seem to be in sight for the musical instrument makers.

Conn-Selmer workers have been on a strike for a year and there is still no progress.

One hundred and seventy workers are now manning the picket line at the Conn-Selmer plant in Elkhart.

Strikers say when they went on strike a year ago they didn't think they would still be at it a year later.

Union members have rejected four contract offers, the last of which was in October.

The union president says that offer still stands but if they accept it only a dozen of the strikers would re-hired.

In the past year more than one hundred replacement workers have been hired.

It's an offer union members refuse to accept.
