After eight months of negotiations with their employer, PeroxyChem workers in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., ratified their first contract on Oct. 25.
The workers first joined the ICWUC Local 61C in December of 2018 because they were concerned about wages and lack of respect from managers.
The three-year agreement addresses those issues and includes annual raises, job security, just cause discipline language and many more protections and benefits that will set these new members up for success.
PeroxyChem is a leading global manufacturer and supplier of hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid, persulfates and adjacent technologies.
The ICWUC is an important part of our UFCW family and represents primarily workers in the chemical industry. If you work in the industry and are interested in improving your wages and working conditions, contact the ICWUC about how you can become a member.
