Local 893 Members
At Storm Lake Ratify
Fact Finder’s Award


The members of amalgamated UE Local 893 employed by the Storm Lake Community School District have approved a fact finder’s recommendation that became effective July 1.

After unsuccessful attempts at reaching a voluntary agreement with the school district, these Local 893 members requested impasse services from the Public Employment Relations Board (PERB). The Board assigned a mediator. After several hours of discussion, it became apparent that a voluntary agreement was not forthcoming.

As a result, a fact-finding hearing took place on April 28. Evidence on behalf of the union was presented by Local 893-97 Sec.-Treas. Ellen Rowlet, Chief Steward Rodney Pooler and Intl. Rep. Greg Cross.

The fact finder’s award, containing an across-the-board wage increase of 50 cents an hour for all bargaining unit employees, received the ratification of both union members and the school board.

The Local 893-97 negotiating committee consisted of Pres. Bob Halder, Sec.-Treas. Ellen Rowlett and Chief Steward Rodney Pooler. They were assisted by Intl. Rep. Greg A. Cross.
