ATLANTA (Sept. 1)—The United Steelworkers of America, involved in a nearly 2½-year labor dispute with Titan International Inc., has filed another unfair labor practice charge against the company with Region 10 of the National Labor Relations Board in Atlanta. The new charge alleges that the company illegally discriminated against 13 union supporters when it fired them at Titan´s former Clinton, Tenn., non-union plant shortly before it sold the facility to Carlisle Cos. Inc. in April. The USWA also filed three other charges against Carlisle alleging discrimination via an illegal firing; the prevention of a union supporter from bidding on a contract job; and the prevention of posting union literature at the Clinton plant.
