GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCIV) -- Steel mill workers in Georgetown want their voices heard. That's why they grabbed signs and marched outside the mill on Wednesday.
Union employees have reportedly been working for the past four days without a contract.
Many said their goal with the march was to let the public know about the tense contract negotiations.
"This is not a strike," said worker Kenneth Riley. "This is an informational picket to let the public know the workers in here are engaged in a struggle with their employers, not for so much higher pay but to protect their benefits."
Union officials say no strike has been authorized, and company officials say they've not ordered a lockout.
The negotiations are continuing.
14-thousand workers at 15 plants across the United States will be impacted.
