PPG union workers contract extended

There is new information tonight in a labor dispute that may keep hundreds of workers off the job. The contract covering union workers at PPG industries in Lake Charles was set to expire at midnight tonight, but the contract has been extended for several days as labor and management continue efforts to reach an agreement acceptable to workers at the chemical plant.

Those on both sides are tight lipped about the situation. A lengthy strike at a PPG plant in West Virginia may shed light on issues here.

The contract between PPG industries and its union workers was to expire at midnight, but has now been extended until midnight Tuesday. Neither PPG or union officials will reveal details of the ongoing contract negotiations but areas of disagreement reportedly include what's called a two-tier pay system-- referring to separate and unequal pay scales and benefits for long time employees versus new hires.
