Ohio IAM Local 1285 Members Reject Latest Contract Offer from Gradall Industries

NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio, April 28, 2024 – IAM Local 1285 (District 54) released a statement on Gradall Industries latest contract offer:

 “Today, IAM Local 1285 (District 54) members at Gradall Industries in New Philadelphia, Ohio voted to overwhelmingly reject the company’s latest contract offer. The company’s wage and benefit package does not meet the expectations of its dedicated workforce, which worked through a pandemic and continues to make this company profitable. Workers are also struggling with work-life balance to spend time with their families due to the amount of overtime demanded, and have concerns about worker safety within the facility. The IAM will continue to stand strong with these dedicated workers as they fight for their families and communities.”

IAM members at the facility build state-of-the-art excavators that are used across the country.

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers is one of the largest and most diverse industrial trade unions in North America, representing approximately 600,000 active and retired members in the aerospace, defense, airlines, railroad, transit, healthcare, automotive, and other industries.
