WATERFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Union officials representing hundreds of striking employees of an upstate New York chemical plant are expected to resume talks with the company in an effort to end the nine-week-old strike.

The Saratogian newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/2i9ox7I ) the talks set to start Tuesday involving IUE-CWA Local 81359 and Momentive Performance Materials are scheduled to last three days this week.

The move comes as about 700 union members remain on a strike that began Nov. 2 at the plant in Waterford, on the Hudson River just north of Albany. The workers walked off the job after negotiations failed to reach an agreement on a new three-year labor contract.

The strike started after workers rejected a company offer that would cut vacation time and reduce health and retiree benefits.

The plan produces industrial sealants, adhesives and water repellents.
