The strike is on today in Morgan County. County highway department workers are manning the picket line. The strikers are in front of the Riecker Complex on Main Street in McConnelsville holding signs. Morgan county commissioners have been meeting with employees trying to resolve conflicts over medical insurance. The commissioners want all county employees on the same level of premium payment. Most non-union employees receive full coverage paid by the county, and those in need of a family plan pay 20 percent of the difference between the individual and family plan. The commissioners want the county highway department employees to do the same. Morgan county commissioners are refusing to comment other than to say they hope the strike is short. The strikers say they do not plan to make a comment about the strike until sometime on Monday.
