The Nation : Food Can Makers Strike

February 18, 1986

About 13,600 striking steel workers set up picket lines at 75 can company plants nationwide after union representatives in Hollywood, Fla., were unable to negotiate a contract agreement on wages, pensions and other issues. The United Steelworkers' coast-to-coast walkout affected 75 plants of the National Can Co., American Can Co., Crown, Cork & Seal and Continental Can U.S., which manufacture food, beverage and other metal containers in 20 states, said Leon Lynch, international vice president of the union.
