DES MOINES, Iowa (June 27)—Agricultural tire maker Titan International Inc. may be facing more unfair labor practice charges from the National Labor Relations Board in its ongoing labor dispute with the United Steelworkers union. The director of NLRB Region 18 informed the company he "found merit" in the charges filed by the union in February, which include the removal of bargaining unit work from Titan´s Des Moines tire plant; not providing "legally required" information to the union; and changes to employees´ insurance benefits, the USWA reported. If the union files a formal complaint, the matter would likely go before a federal administrative law judge. USWA Local 164 in Des Moines has been on strike since May 1, 1998.
