More than 350 Bronx factory workers are on strike against one of the largest pharmaceutical manufacturers in the world.

The union workers - who manufacture and package medical ointments and creams at a Perrigo factory on Bathgate Ave. - were locked out Tuesday morning when they returned to work after Labor Day, they said Wednesday.
The workers belong to Teamsters Local 210 but they and the union are at odds, several said. Bob Bellach, vice president of Local 210, said he believes the Perrigo proposal is reasonable because it offers a 4% wage hike, the largest the Bronx workers have ever received.
