Lead to Early Settlement
With Koegels and Sons
Early negotiations between amalgamated UE Local 264 and Charles Koegels
and Sons reached an early agreement on Aug. 13. Union members ratified a contract that
raises wages by 26 cents an hour effective Sept. 19. The average wage will now be $12.94.
The one-year contract increases the shoe allowance from $50 to $75 each
year for full-time employees and $75 every other year for part-time employees.
The negotiating committee consisted of Chief Steward Bill Sullivan and
Steward Diane Giroud. They were assisted by UE Field Org. Roberta Krause.
