Semi-fabricated aluminium manufacturer Kaiser Aluminum said last week that it has reached an accord with the labor union at its Warrick Rolling Mill in Evansville, Indiana.
Kaiser and United Steelworkers Local 104 signed a four-year labor agreement that is back-dated to May 15 this year. The deal will run through May 2027 and cover about 850 union employees there.
Keith A. Harvey, President and Chief Executive Officer, said in a press release that the new deal will be beneficial to both labor and management at the plant.
“We are very pleased to have reached a mutually beneficial agreement to position our Company and USW employees at Warrick for sustainable success. Consistent with our expectations when we acquired Warrick on March 31, 2021, we believe the contributions from our Warrick employees will be instrumental in the achievement of our longer-term growth objectives for the packaging business. This agreement further underscores the strength of our relationship with the United Steelworkers and our objectives to be a preferred employer in our communities, preferred supplier for our customers, and preferred investment for our shareholders.”
Kaiser did not disclose any further details of the deal.
