Local 1139 Reaches
Contract with Thiele
Despite Hard Times


With their employer genuinely experiencing hard times, the members of amalgamated UE Local 1139 employed by Thiele Engineering agreed to modifications in production practices and the pension plan in recent negotiations. However, Thiele continues to pay the full cost of the insurance premium. Workers will gain hourly wage increases of 2.5 percent in each of the three years covered by the contract.

The union negotiating committee consisted of Randy Geisler, chief steward, and committee persons Steve Pipp and Landy Geisler and Steve Larsen, committee person for the night shift. They were assisted by UE Field Org. Rocky DeMaio.
