The reports I heard today were that the owners of Stallings Salvage had allegedly not paid their employees for time periods ranging from 2 weeks to a month. Employees gathered peacefully to protest and receive lost wages. Employees were being called in alphabetically and I understand the owners were inside writing individual payroll checks to each employee.
Union County Law Enforcement was on hand if needed but this was a very peaceful and appeared to be a well organized effort arranged by the employees. Temperatures were high and the Union County Red Cross was on hand handing out ice cold water to anyone who asked.
