Forsythe locks out strikers

Virginia, USA
A week-long Arlington Transit strike took a bizarre turn Friday. Union leader Charles Smith declared the strike would be over at 2 p.m., but shortly after accused Forsythe Transportation of locking-out employees who had been on strike.
Bill Forsythe, chief executive of the company that bears his name, said no one was locked out – but the 21 employees who participated in the strike remained under suspension pending the outcome of an internal investigation. Arlington County is in the process of renewing its annual contract with Forsythe Transportation.
