Guards Go on Strike at Los Alamos Lab

From Associated Press

Security guards at Los Alamos National Laboratory went on strike Monday and were replaced by non-union workers and supervisors.

“The security of the laboratory is not in any jeopardy,” said James Breen, a spokesman for the military research complex where the atomic bomb was developed during World War II.

The guards walked out in a dispute with their employer, Mason & Hanger-Silas Mason Co., the laboratory’s security contractor.
