Some employees of Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding
in Pascagoula went on strike on Thursday morning, reported Fox 10
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, IBEW Local Union #733, has confirmed union members are striking. IBEW and several other unions rejected a recent contract proposal from the ship building company
. Members say the proposed raises would not be enough to off-set recent cost of living increases.
