Buffett rejects Bernie Sanders call to intervene in strike
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – Several hundred strikers at a manufacturing plant owned by Berkshire Hathaway have won high-profile support from U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, but company CEO Warren Buffett has refused to get involved in the contractual dispute.
Sanders, a longtime union supporter, sent a letter to Buffett this week urging him to intervene in the dispute between the Precision Castparts unit in Berkshire and United Steelworkers Local 40 in West Virginia to ensure that workers get a fair contract.
