HAMILTON, Ind. (Jan. 17)—The most recent organizing attempt by the United Auto Workers union at an Eagle-Picher Industries Inc. plant failed, ending a string of successful efforts dating back 18 months. Hourly workers at Eagle-Picher's Hamilton factory, which produces automotive component products, voted 120-59 in late November not to join the UAW. The plant employs about 300 production workers. Going back to August 2000, three separate attempts to organize workers at selected Eagle-Picher locations in Michigan and Virginia succeeded.
