The Nation

September 23, 1985

The smaller of two striking unions voted to end its 22-week-old walkout at Bath Iron Works in Bath, Me., as the company said it would make one more attempt to settle with 4,500 striking shipbuilders before inviting union members to return on their own. Clerical and technical workers of Local 7 of the Industrial Marine and Shipbuilding Workers of America voted 213 to 47 to accept a contract that leaves wage, insurance and pension issues pending while Local 6, representing production workers, continues its strike. The smaller union would accept the contract provisions of a settlement with Local 6, which has been on strike since July 1. About 350 Local 7 workers were expected to re-enter the shipyard today.
