Truckers on strike at chicken processing plant

Posted by: Melissa Johnson - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -  Truck drivers at Koch Foods on the West South Boulevard are on strike.

The truckers were picketing Sunday evening in front the chicken processing plant, formerly known as Sylvest.

They say they're upset with the company's latest contract offer, and without truckers to deliver the chickens, they say there's little chance the plant can continue operating.

It's only been a year since the truckers voted to unionize.
