Members of United Steel Workers Local 4564 voted to dissolve the picket line at Phillips Manufacturing as of Monday. Workers had been on strike since September when contract talks broke down over wages and benefits.

Union officials said they are waiting for the company to decide what their plans are for the workers. Some workers said the company may not bring all the workers back and is considering keeping some of the replacement workers hired during the strike.

Executives with Phillips Manufacturing did not return calls for comment.
