The State of Pennsylvania dealt a severe blow to the union workers of Harley-Davidson's Springettsbury plant, denying them unemployment compensation during the four-week work stoppage...
A state referee reviewing the February strike at Harley-Davidson determined union workers were, in fact, on strike, and not locked out of the Springettsbury Township plant as had been disputed.
It means that the 2,516 workers of Local 175 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers are not eligible for unemployment compensation because they effectively chose to strike.

The Union had argued that their workers were locked out by Harley Davidson. However the referee noted that Harley locked them out only because the workers had previously agreed to strike.
