Picketing continues at Hennepin Steel plant

Posted by wlpo on July 20, 2009

It’s week two for former steelworkers picketing outside of the Hennepin Mittal Steel plant.
Leonard Barajas worked at the plant for 33 years. He says between 35 and 50 people have been outside of the plant’s two gates since last week and they’ll continue their protest until Mittal sells the plant.
They plan to be joined by members of other steelworker unions Wednesday afternoon.
The plant has been closed since March.
