A Connecticut man who police say drove an 18-wheel truck at on-strike Momentive workers was arrested Friday.

The Saratoga Count Sheriff’s Office says Igor P. Semenyaka, 46, of West Hartford, Conn., nearly struck a worker while leaving the plant after making a delivery. More than 700 members of Locals 81359 and 81380 have been  on strike around the plant’s entrances since Nov. 2, protesting cuts to retirement benefits and vacation times, among other things. The ongoing saga this month drew the ire of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who blasted the company for gutting benefits while its CEO drew more than $5.4 million in compensation.

Semenyaka was charged with reckless endangerment, a misdemeanor.
