It's been nearly a month since, Cooper Tire locked out hundreds of United Steelworkers. And it looks like the labor dispute is not ending anytime soon.
Last week, The United Steelworkers local president told WNWO that progress was made in talks but Wednesday the union told us, they've not heard back from Cooper Tire to schedule more negotiations.
Cooper locked out about 1,000 workers at its Findlay plant on November 28, a day after union members rejected a tentative three-year agreement.
The company has brought in temporary workers to keep the plant operating.
