04.30.2009 – Sixty production and maintenance workers at the Aluminum Rolling Mill of Koenig & Vits in Manitowoc, WI recently voted for the right to collectively bargain for wages, benefits and working conditions.
“This group really was solid and determined,” said IAM Organizing Department Grand Lodge Representative Bob Anderson. “They need seniority rights, job security and the protections a union contract brings.”
IAM Midwest Territory GVP Philip J. Gruber praised everyone involved in the organizing win. “We welcome our new members and thank GLR Bob Anderson along with Apprentice Organizers Brian Jarvensivu and Jan Desmidt for the hard work and dedication to growing our great union.”
