Clark Steel Workers in Ohio Ratify New Contract

Workers at Clark Steel Co. in Middletown, OH, who voted last year to join the IAM, are working for higher wages and improved benefits this week after they overwhelmingly ratified a new contract on Sunday with Clark Steel Co.
The three-year accord features increases in the company’s 401k contribution and secures existing health benefits by placing caps on costs to the members of Local 1943. The new contract also provides for wage increases of three percent each year over the life of the agreement in addition to a signing bonus.
“Congratulations to GLR Jim Smith and President and Directing Business Rep. Scott Rich for their work bringing these negotiations to a successful conclusion,” said GVP Lynn D. Tucker, Jr. “And congratulations to the IAM members at Clark Steel, who stood strong and resolute throughout the entire bargaining process.”
