KOHLER, Wis. (AP) -- The union on strike against the Kohler Co. is circulating a list of members who have crossed the picket line and returned to work.

United Auto Workers Local 833 President Tim Tayloe says the list was distributed at the request of members and that he has encouraged strikers not to retaliate against those who have gone back to work.

The list also states the 13 on the list are no longer union brothers or sisters and that "a scab is a scab." Union members who have crossed the picket line in the two-week-old strike say they can't afford to stay off the job. Luis Rodriguez says he can't support his four children and pregnant wife on $200 a week in strike pay.

No new bargaining talks have been scheduled.
