It's been over a month since Potomac Farms Dairy workers went on strike.
"We're getting very small pay from the teamsters now: some of us are surviving on a hundred dollars a week right now," says Thomas Fair, a striking dairy worker.
The workers' union rejected the business' offer that would cut their pension and pay back in June. Since then, they haven't heard a word.
"They'll stand at this door and window and peer out, they won't respond to you, they won't respond to us, it's such a terrible position for a company that used to be thought of as the local cow," says Larry Wolfe, President of the worker's union, Teamsters Local 453.
When WHAG approached the Potomac Farms Manufacturing building, the doors were locked and a front-door buzzer responded, "we have no comment."
Many strikers say they had no relief workers for over a year: they worked six day weeks, more than 10 hours a day.
"We can't go on like that, we can't. The objective is to make money, not lose money," says Tom Trimble, a striking dairy worker.
Now local grocery stores, like Helmick's Grocery in Flintstone, are losing a quarter of their business.
"Just one of our Friday's, a normal delivery day, nobody showed up," says Dawn Mock, a sales clerk at Hemlick's Grocery.
They found out by a rumor that they would no longer get Potomac's products.
"I have eight shelves that belong to Potomac milk and they're empty," says Linda Smith, Hemlick's Grocery store owner.
Smith now brings the product back to Hemlick's herself. She's saving Flintstone customers a 30 mile round trip drive to Cumberland just for a gallon of milk.
"Most of the men on this line have worked here ten plus years, some twenty, my husband sixteen, and they've worked hard for the business. To have them just stand out here for five weeks, it's not just financially draining, it's emotionally draining," says Tara Fair, wife of a striking dairy worker.
The workers say the time is now: Potomac Farms can make a difference in fifty families' lives just by making a phone call.
