Wed. 11:25 a.m.: Police investigate damage call outside Stericycle plant
WARREN — Warren police are investigating a report Wednesday of a damaged tire from a vehicle that had to go through the picket line at the Stericycle plant.
A worker tried to pull into the plant entrance off Pine Avenue SE about 3:20 a.m. and was blocked by a group of pickets, the police report states. After several moments, the group let him pull forward and his vehicle ran over a strip of barbed wire that caught into his tire tread.
Officers spoke with the pickets who denied causing the damage, the report states.
Teamsters Local 377 workers at the medical waste plant have been picketing outside, saying the company engaged in unfair labor practices.
