Nearly 1,000 workers picketed the Harley-Davidson motorcycle assembly plant outside York on Monday over pay and work rules. The two sides were "oceans apart" on issues that led employees to vote Sunday night to go on strike, said Clark Ruppert, district representative of the International Assn. of Machinists & Aerospace Workers. Company officials declined to discuss the bargaining. Employees voted 1,242 to 65 to go on strike after talks broke off Saturday afternoon.
