Snow plow drivers threaten strike in Minnesota county

Local News

DULUTH, Minn. – The union that represents snow plow drivers in Minnesota’s St. Louis County has filed a notice to strike with the state if negotiations for a new labor agreement continue to break down.

Reports Thursday say that plow drivers and other public works employees could walk out after a 10-day “cooling-off” period after mediation. The union said in a statement that “county employees are permitted to strike on any future date.”

Union members overwhelming voted last month to authorize a strike. A strike would come at a time when Duluth experienced its third-snowiest calendar year on record.
