(Port Angeles) -- pickets have gone up outside Angeles Composites.

About a dozen union informational picketers walked with signs yesterday deamanding a "fair contract" from the company.

Union officials say the company has been unwilling to reach a "fair contract".

But ACTI president Mike Rauch says the company has been negotiating with the union in good faith for over 16 months. In a statement, Rauch said the contract needs to take into accout the industry and economy.

Rauch says later this month, some ACTI workers are set to vote to decertify the union with the National Labor Relations Board.

The employees voted to join the International Association of Machinists union about a year and a half ago.
