Employers of Arlington National CemeteryWorkers Agree to Return to Bargaining Table as Workers’ Strike Enters Second Day
As the strike by workers who care for the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery entered its second day, the workers’ employers agreed to return to the bargaining table to discuss sick leave or modest pay increases. “It’s a positive development that the employers have agreed to return to negotiations,” said Larry Doggett, Business Manager of Local 572 and himself a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. “What these workers are seeking is reasonable.” The walkout is believed to be the first strike by workers at the cemetery.
