Camillus Cutlery strike continues
The strike at Camillus Cutlery continues for another week. Seventy-eight union workers began striking in mid-May after rejecting a contract offer from the company.
Workers say the company wants to cut wages, paid vacations and holidays and make employees pay more for health insurance. Camillus Cutlery says the cuts are necessary because the company faces a severe financial crisis.
Union workers say they are frustrated with the negotiation process.

"Absolutely nothing has changed, the company refuses to negotiate with us at all, with the union. They refuse to talk to the committees, so nothing has changed," said striking worker Hazel Seeber
The union turned down a contract proposed last month.
The factory remains open and supervisors are filling in for the missing workers.
