Steelworkers on strike at Rock of Ages

Print More

A strike by steelworkers has shut down the Rock of Ages granite quarries and manufacturing plant in Barre Town. The 34 members of United Steelworkers of America Local Number 4 rejected the company’s contract offer on Saturday.

The steelworkers’ picket line is being honored by other bargaining units. A company spokesman says it’s hard to say whether the strike will be as short-lived as a two-day work stoppage by the same union local three years ago.
